Quoted Studios is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) dedicated to animated journalism and bringing interviews to life.
We apply our journalistic roots and sensibility to unlocking hidden stories. Whether they’re interviews sitting on a journalist’s tapes or in a major archive, recordings buried in a media brand’s archives, or the yet to be heard stories within an organization, we transform raw, intimate storytelling into culturally resonant digital content.
Who We Collaborate With
We are dedicated to spreading stories by our nation’s foremost storytellers: journalists. By finding creative ways to transform new and vintage oral histories with a cross section of Americans into modern digital content, we serve as the connective tissue between journalism’s past and future.
We’re the engine for foundations dedicated to a vibrant media, and organizations looking for unique ways to connect stories with their initiatives.
Quoted Studios reaches into the past to find interviews with everyday Americans and our nation's icons—whether they happened yesterday or 50 years ago—that speak to a brand’s core message. We curate interviews—from fields spanning entertainment and business to everyday life in America—to help brands create culturally resonant content campaigns.
Leveraging our network of journalists, we’re also able to discover the unheard stories buried within a company. Tell the story no one has heard.
