With a background in documentary and historical content programs our production team are well suited to producing films for museums and exhibitions. Over the last five years we have created exhibition films for several museums including the Solent Sky Museum in Southampton, The Museum of the Royal Navy and The Wellington Trust (HMS Wellington).
The subjects have varied from personal stories such as Harriet Quimby, the first woman to fly across the English Channel to broader subjects such as the Battle of the Atlantic. The value of the films have been twofold both as a centerpiece to an exhibition, and also as an educational resource.
Most of our team have worked on broadcast documentaries and understand the process of taking a complex subject and being able to tell the story within a limited timeframe without losing the key message.
Many new installations incorporate interactive technology and video content can be a major part this. For our clients we have produced bespoke films to form the centerpiece of an exhibition and short clips for supplementary use such as on handheld devices and use on the web. We work closely alongside exhibition and museum designers and can advise on audio visual installations. We have also provided services for oral history projects.
Often projects supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund require a tangible asset such as a film. We have worked with a number of clients who have received funding from the HLF and we understand the criteria such a project needs. We are also happy to advise and help at the pre-application stage.
