The Art World
We've produced films and animation for the Ingram Collection of Modern British Art, Fiumano Clase Gallery, Lightbox Museum, Barakat Gallery, Royal Society of Arts, Aleph Contemporary and the National Gallery.
We've also worked for companies outside of the art world, such as BBC, Sony TV, Channel 4, Virgin Media, Peer Music, Caffè Nero, eBay, Unilever, HarperCollins, The Young Vic and the English Touring Opera, just to name a few.
We've had films screened in over 60 international film festivals and have produced films for Businesses, Broadcasters, Charities, Think-tanks, Education, Publishing, Art Galleries & Museums, the Music Industry, and the Public sector.
"Art is not what you see, but what you make others see."
The French impressionist got it right when he expressed the importance of guiding perception. This is one of the reasons we love working alongside Galleries and Museums to help them engage with their audience through visual storytelling and starting the dialogue around art even before they step into the gallery.
There are so many different approaches to helping an audience engage with art. We're only just scratching the surface, but there are plenty of opportunities to develop the right type of content and shape it for each context.
Here are a handful of examples of our work within the world of art:
We’ve produced a series of films on artists for Aleph Contemporary. We also developed a podcast called To the Point featuring Jon Sharples (Art Collector, broadcaster & Curator) on Collecting contemporary art.
We filmed a live lecture featuring Caroline Milns (Zulufish & British Institute of Interior Design Member), Vivienne Roberts (Aleph Contemporary Founder) and Jennifer Guerrini-Maraldi (JGM Gallery), chaired by Harriet Forde (President of the British Institute of Interior Design) at the London Arts Fair. And a series of interviews with Alistair Hicks (Senior Curator at Deutsche Bank) at the London Arts Fair.
We filmed projects in partnership with other galleries and museums, such as a commentary piece on Young Bomberg and the Old Masters at the National Gallery featuring Richard Cork (Art Historian).

making use of traditional film and animation can also be combined with new developments in 'Augmented Reality'. AR can enhance the visitor experience in art and cultural projects by bringing exhibits to life and providing interactive and immersive elements.
