We have just finished filming ‘Getting Dressed in the 18th Century – Gentleman’, for Lady Lever Art Gallery, National Museums of Liverpool. The film will be part of a new exhibition on costume and is a companion to the ‘Getting Dressed in the 18th Century’ film on a wealthy woman’s attire we made earlier.
The film is currently in post production and the music is being composed by Chris Gordon.
Here are some taster screen grabs:
The location was South Ormsby Hall in the Lincolnshire Wolds, and it was blowing quite a blizzard the day we filmed. However, were fortunate to reach the hall on time and all the crew get home again before the roads were blocked. This photo (below) is by set photographer Adam Fielding:
The film was directed by Nic Loven, the cast were Philip Stevens (Gentleman) and John Males (manservant), the costume was by Pauline Loven, the production assistant was Adam Fielding and the dresser was Kelly Clark.
In 2015 Crow’s Eye was contacted by a media company, completing the digital interpretation of a museum, to create a short video showing the layers of eighteenth century costume.
The video was intended as part of the interpretation of the eighteenth century gallery which featured many society portraits from the era.The media company added the VO – though this is also something Crow’s Eye has expertise in.
We also work with digital companies who produce apps for museums. Mobile apps are becoming a must have for most museums and galleries as they can help drive more visitors and introduce virtual tours. We can create those special short films which can bring a collection to life. For example, we have recently made a short film about 18th century dress, for a digital company, to be shown in a gallery of 18th century portraits. Here is a sneak peak of the work in progress:
