Chimerica Media is a new production company set up by Niall Ferguson, Melanie Fall and Adrian Pennink to make high quality history documentaries. Their first TV series 'The Ascent of Money' was well received in 2008, with the Washington Post wryly commenting it was "A program that could be usefully viewed by most of America's roughly 13,000 economists".
In conjunction with FIFO Digital Media, who did the design and branding and project-managed the operation, we built the website using MODx, with custom MODx extensions for content-managed video previews, production stills gallery and out-takes. As fans of Niall's revisionist history and worldview we greatly enjoyed working on the project, and wish Niall all the best in the future.
