Media Production|Permanent Exhibit

The Boris Yeltsin Presidential Center is a museum and event space that brings to life the first democratically elected president of Russia’s history.

When tapped to create the media for the Center, Lorem Ipsum knew that this was the first space of its kind to celebrate post-Soviet Russian culture and history, and its content needed to reflect much more than just a presidency, but a major shift in Russian life.  

Lorem Ipsum developed content for multiple parts of the museum, ranging from documentary films to media and installations that are experiential, interactive, and deeply meaningful. In a three-year-long effort, Lorem Ipsum’s team traveled the globe to shoot 133 exclusive interviews, licensed footage from over 100 archival sources, and produced 163 media and interactive programs. Leading world figures, including Bill Clinton and Tony Blair, were interviewed for the project.
