Voices Magnified is an original A&E shortform series highlighting a wide range of people driving change in their communities, confronting challenges and bringing people together. This collection of individual viewpoints gives a national spotlight to timely and important conversations about equality, inclusion and social justice occurring across America today.
We helped A&E craft these incredible stories by providing editorial and post-production support throughout the series. We dove into each individual’s compelling narratives and captured what makes each so powerful in each 60-second video. Together, Voices Magnified brings a multitude of inspiring perspectives and personalities into one cohesive series.
