bespoke exhibition design and installation
We work with professional actors providing accurately researched and developed scripts before going into production. Commissioned by artsasia.org to produce four historical reconstructions has required us to obtain period costumes and artefacts. Having produced several dramatised productions we have a wealth of experience and established longstanding contacts within the industry.
heritage site tours
We work with curators and local collaborators to bring to life experience of heritage sites. With especially adapted mobile camera rigs, using wide angle lenses we were able to harness the vast landscapes of Cranford Park.
Working with archives left by prominent yet on occasions forgotten individuals and heroes we piece together their life journeys, to bring forth fascinating stories of struggle and success.
We have produced entire projects like “Anthem”. A complex live streamed event at Brunel University using 5 cameras and 6 prerecorded vox pops as a stream into the live vision mix. The 3 month long project, involving extensive collaboration with participants was very successful.
multi media, bespoke exhibitions
We draw inspiration from the projects, and attempt to encapsulate their essence in the presentation, be it video screens integrated into printed panels or embedded into bespoke set designs
We use various different filmmaking techniques, such as long developing shots and close ups with bokeh, soft backgrounds, to create intimacy and empathy with the interviewees. Lighting subjects to match their surrounding and create depth in the shot. Special effects from chromakeying to adding elements like fire and smoke. Combining illustrated animations with motion text.
We offer a comprehensive creative design and printing service for exhibitions.
design, print and photography
We provide all print services from photographic capture of images and manipulation to design of brochures, pop up panels, bespoke installations, outdoor signage and banners
digital asset management
We have designed and installed from scratch the AMC museum, including a bespoke music pod. Cabinets displaying instruments, augmented with digital displays of archival video and images.
We digitised legacy media formats from 1/2″ tape reel to vhs and dvcam in repurposing them for a digital asset management system, allowing access through public portals. Liaising with Third Light we procured and installed an excellent DAMS system for PRSSV.
