Drake's Well

The Drake Well Museum in Titusville, Pennsylvania explores the explosive growth of the oil industry from its birthplace at Edwin Drake's well. The Magic Lantern created a short film that introduces visitors to the museum's message - that fossil fuels like oil and natural gas pervade almost every aspect of modern life. We also designed and installed the special effects in the theater the film plays in.

Beyond the theater, we also produced a series of interactives ranging from touchscreen kiosks to mechanical installations.

Below are some clips from the film.
