"Your work was speedy, efficient, and very precise. I'd ask a specific question or express curiosity about a particular subject, or tangent within that subject, and before I knew it, you'd provided answers and an extensive bibliography of primary sources - stuff I never knew existed nor had seen cited anywhere else."

-Randall Jahnson, screenwriter The Doors and The Mask of Zorro


"The History Studio was so instrumental in assisting in the development and the formation of our film 'Under the Apple Tree.'  The research they did on the life, speech, lifestyle, clothes, behavior, and politics influencing Americans during the 1940s gave our script the realism it needed.  I am a strong believer in research and making sure that you have all your information clear and authentic before your project goes to film.  Having a pleasant and organized company giving us all the materials we needed was the biggest benefit to me, as a producer."

-Leslie LaPage, film and TV producer and director, founder of LA Femme Film Festival
