Museum Film Goes Viral!

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.

Getting dressed in the 18th century

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.

Crow’s Eye costume department worked closely with Pauline Rushton, the costume curator of Lady Lever Art Gallery. You can read Pauline Rushton’s blog here and Pauline Loven’s blog here.

Since the completed film was released online it has gone viral with over one and a half million views and growing:

18th Century, Museum Film

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:
