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.
In our film ‘Tell Them of Us’, we told the story of WW1 casualty, Robert Crowder, who died at Passchendaele aged just 21. We told his story through his letters and from the perspective of his family at home. We didn’t however, in the scope of that format, explain what had happened to Robert’s brother William when he went missing and what he had done to earn the DSO. Continuing to tell the Crowder family’s story with a drama-documentary has allowed us to fill in the story of William and his future wife, Violet, and to move forward a little to show how the war years shaped their future attitudes.
Here are two location screen shots from the making of ‘William’s Story’.
Here are some of the behind the scenes pictures from the location shoots:
