We’ve worked with The National Gallery in London over the last few years on various projects and were delighted to be asked back to film a series of short films for this Autumn’s blockbuster show ‘Courtauld Impressionists’ featuring works by Manet, Renoir, Van Gogh, Cezanne, Gauguin and many more.
For the first time in London for 70 years the National Gallery displays major Impressionist and Post-Impressionist masterworks from the Courtauld Gallery, purchased in the 1920s by Samuel Courtauld (1876–1947). These will be shown alongside paintings from the National Gallery’s own collection which the businessman and philanthropist financed and helped acquire.
The project consisted of producing five films: an introduction and one film each focusing on two major works by Cezanne, Renoir, Seurat and Manet. The filming was done in the gallery outside of public hours to give us the time to capture these stunning paintings and to capture engaging and informative interviews with the show's curator. The result is a series of stunning films and shorter versions for promotion on the gallery's social media channels.
