Award-winning stories brought to your tv, phone, classroom and hopefully, soul.
Welcome to OGTA!
Please make plans to participate in this historic event — advise educators, teachers and leaders as well.
We interview old combat veterans who’ve learned a thing or two about life and bring the story to the world.
We produce films but we also produce corresponding Educator’s Kits for teachers everywhere. Here’s one example.
OGTA is broadcast on PBS stations in America, Premiere’d at museums worldwide and on-demand throughout the universe on Vimeo.
Boeing®, Xerox®, Sanford Health®, South Dakota Air & Space Museum, National Hellenic Museum, Distinguished Flying Cross Society, Daughters of the American Revolution…
We can’t do it all. And we shouldn’t. “Teaching history” is a club-effort that includes friends, parents, groups, communities, teachers, leaders…and you. But, we’re pretty good at giving the fore-mentioned folks some awesome tools to help along the way.
At the end of the shoot, it’s these four people who hover over the footage, the photos, the stuff…and go, “How do we get this out there?!” So why only three pictures? Clyde’s kind of shy. Plus, he’s prolly all talked-out.
“Lingberg” is the keel to OGTA. In fact, the whole OGTA idea is probably his. With decades of award-winning story telling overflowing his portfolio, Rick’s a founding OGTA’er and often, the most likable.
OGTA uses Canon®, Red®, Arri® and Gopro® cameras mostly but every once in a while, we look at the iPhone footage and go… “Dang. That’s pretty cool, too.”
OGTA has over 70 combined years of managing (highly) successful international brands. We can hustle a story into the media, produce a kick-butt Premiere and Keynote the company gathering with the best of them. And yes, we have MERCHANDISE.
John Mollison’s big-benefit to the team is the ability to create artwork that accompanies the story. John’s veteran-signed artwork is in galleries, museums and collections in 14+ countries.
The stories and legends that make History so nutritious find a terrific home in the classroom. To this end, OGTA works to create Educator’s Kits (that work with common curriculum) for teachers to use.
