Air Sea and Speed, The Schneider Trophy

Solent Sky Museum

Calshots6Copia Productions was commissioned by the Solent Sky Museum to create the centerpiece of the exhibition, a film telling the story of the Schneider Trophy and the important role these air races played in the development of British aviation.

Over a three month period the script was written, rare archive footage was sourced and the film was edited to original soundtrack composed by Tom Ashford. The film was then voiced by Martin Muncaster (Radio Four).

Working alongside RWPD Ltd and The Heritage Lottery Fund, Copia Productions played an intrinsic part in the concept, design and production of this exhibition.

The film has been well received and has been distributed as an educational resource.

The exhibition can now be seen at the Solent Sky Museum in Southampton.
