The National Museum of Scotland opened 10 beautiful new galleries in 2016, exploring the worlds of art, fashion, religion and science. The galleries are a fantastic feast for both the intellect and the imagination; they are eclectic, adventurous, entertaining and amazing. Moving through the museum you can sense the excitement as crowds of visitors, from all over the world, enjoy the pleasure of exploration. The museum was described as a ‘Temple of the curious’ in The Times, who said “it seems all of human achievement is laid out for the curious visitor”.
We are proud to be part of this, having made 17 documentaries for the galleries, covering everything from the Ceremony of the Mass to Particle Physics and Body Image. Location filming took place all across Scotland, with the help of scientists, engineers, fashion designers, students, bridge-builders, entrepreneurs, even the police. A selection of the films and images of the spectacular new galleries can be seen below.
This short film introduces the work of artist Felieke van der Leest, which is on display in the gallery. Filmed on location at her studio in Norway the video is designed to engage the interest of visitors and send them back to the objects with a renewed appetite for discovery.
