2017, September: Our film goes viral!
In 2016 we made a short film on the sequence on ‘Getting Dressed in the Eighteenth Century’ for the Lady Lever Art Gallery in Liverpool. The film was to be part of the media interpretation of the 18th century gallery which featured many portraits of wealthy society ladies. The idea was to get beneath the formality of the portraits and to explain how the period silhouette was achieved. Costumed and filmed by us the film was released by Lady Lever Art Gallery online and has had more than 15 million views to date. For more on this see our costumier’s blog

The feature film we made to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War (shown at the Collection, Lincoln, and the National Archive, London) developed a spin-off exhibition and book ‘Centenary Stitches’, on knitting during the First World War. We also followed it with a companion drama-documentary, ‘William’s Story’.
