Young Alexander Hamilton – Christiansted National Historic Site USVI

Alexander Hamilton is arguably the most important founding father of the United States.  His influence would reshape America’s economy, build our Federal Reserve Banks, and revolutionize trade.

BPI was tasked by the National Park Service to tell of Hamilton’s beginnings as a young man growing up on the island of St. Croix. 

A script based on meticulous historical research was developed by the BPI creative team. The production design was to shoot location photography on St. Croix and then layer on recreation footage shot at BPI’s studio.  

The resulting program is an engaging mix of original video, animated stills, and studio production layered with a rich soundtrack. The program plays at the Christiansted National Historic Site on St. Croix, USVI.
