The National Museum of Scotland opened 10 beautiful new galleries this week, exploring the worlds of art and science. The galleries look fantastic, a real visual feast that is adventurous, entertaining and amazing.  The museum has a fantastic energy to it, described as a ‘Temple of the curious’,  The  Times 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 short documentaries for the galleries, covering everything from Particle Physics to Body Image.

Our new guide to the production process can be seen here. Hopefully it can help to cut through the jargon and show that commissioning a video can be a fairly straightforward process. This is the first in our series of production guides, up next will be a guide to commissioning and making videos for museums and exhibitions.

At the end of a marathon 2-year project, ADI‘s ‘Spirit of Freedom’ reached its spectacular conclusion this month, with the arrival in South Africa of 33 lions rescued from the brutality of circuses in Colombia and Peru. We’ve been following the whole campaign and were in South Africa to film the lions taking their first steps on African soil.

We’ve had the privilege of working with ADI for just over 6 years, following their incredible work as they campaign for animal rights across the globe, and focusing in particular on animal rescues in Bolivia, Colombia and Peru. As part of an amazing international team we’ve documented the highs and lows, providing a steady stream of still images and video to help promote, publicise and fund-raise. As the stories have unfolded we’ve worked with ADI’s media team to share them with an international audience; short form videos content is uploaded to Youtube with individual videos receiving over 7 million views. The full story of the 2010 Bolivian rescue was told through ‘Lion Ark’ a feature-length documentary that has won 11 awards at international film festivals and is currently being distributed by ITV. Our footage of the ‘Spirit of Freedom’ campaign will be turned into a series for TV but in the meantime you can see some of it in this South African news piece or read a great account here on the Huffington Post. More importantly the 33 are now settling in to a well earned retirement under the African sun at the Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary in Limpopo, South Africa.
