Behind the Scenes with the Between the Waters Project Director

October 25, 2016 - Posted in Culture by Tabitha Safdi

Between the Waters is a production of South Carolina ETV and is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities and Humanities South Carolina. The first project about Hobcaw Barony, produced by SCETV, was a television documentary entitled The Baruchs of Hobcaw, which was broadcast in 2012. This hour-long program left the producers with the desire to find a way to explore the complex story of Hobcaw Barony more deeply and interactively. Intrigued by the idea of applying immersive transmedia techniques and formats to history, they began development of a prototype of Between the Waters. Find more information and the transmedia documentary at www.betweenthewaters.org. Betsy Newman is the Project Director, Producer, Writer, and Editor.
