Location Research / Scriptwriting / Filming / Editing / Subtitling
Capture a once-in-a-generation restoration of Lincoln Cathedral’s organ.
And to film it in a space that very few visitors get to see.
Working close with the restoration team, we learnt to understand their tasks. This helped us to shape the narrative. Filming required a flexible schedule because of thousands of parts to check and repair.
The edit needed to be of interest to the general public and also to the organ enthusiast community. Identified as the most effective distribution channels were YouTube and Facebook. The video also had to meet an event deadline.
Housed in a high enclosed area is the main body of the organ.
To give the visuals depth we shot with shallow focus. By using single point lighting, we gave texture to the scene. This was through highlighting objects whilst also casting shadows. The grading emphasised this and also pulled out the warmer tones in the woodwork.
We prepared the final film footage to meet a tight event deadline.
We also added subtitles to the online videos for accessibility reasons.
The video gained over 17,500 organic views on YouTube and over 14,500 views on Facebook.
