Video production in Kuwait

Filming in Kuwait

We’re just back from 3 weeks of location filming in Kuwait, really getting to know the country filming in pretty much every corner of the country……

Horniman Museum, London

Working with the Walrus

Yoho Media has been commissioned by the Hornimam Museum to produce a series of programmes for their new Anthropology Gallery; including an interactive installation, video and audio content. We’ll be working with museum designers Ralph Applebaum Associates and project managers Fraser Randall to create the new exhibits, which will open in early 2018.

Using a 1950s Rolleiflex T medium format camera to shoot stills for a film about the Blasket Islands in South West Ireland.

Shooting medium format in Ireland

Very excited to be shooting film for the first time in a decade, and on a spectacularly beautiful day in South West Ireland. We’re shooting stills and re-enactment scenes for a film about the Blasket Islands for Ireland’s Office of Public Works. In order to produce images that have a strong period feel we’re using 6 x 6 medium format film and a vintage Rolleiflex camera. You can see the results here.

Two planes heading West, which is the direction chosen by the inhabitants when they abandoned the islands in 1953.
World's Shortest Scheduled Flight

World’s Shortest Scheduled Flight

The world’s shortest scheduled flight, from Westray to Papa Westray in the Orkney Islands is shorter than the runway at Heathrow, with a duration of less than 2 minutes. We made a short film about the flight as part of a package of documentary films for the renovated galleries at the National Museum of Flight, which opened earlier this year. Today the film has been picked up by media outlets around the world, including CNN in the US and Sky News in the UK. It goes to show that in a world hungry for content it’s so often museums that are telling the best stories. It also demonstrates the way in which digital media assets (videos, stills and even stories) that are designed so use in galleries, can have a real reach and enable museums to tell their stories beyond their physical limits.

Projection mapping at Clearwell Caves

Digital Jurassic Park

‘Ancient Seas’ is our latest video installation at Clearwell Caves in Gloucester, where fish that died out more than 350 million years ago are brought back to life. Two projections enable these monsters of the deep to swim through the underground world, projected onto the walls and into the water in the caves. The animations are based on the fossil remains that make up the Chrinoidal Limestone in which the caves were originally formed during the Carboniferous period.
