The National Gallery

Courtauld Impressionists

We’ve worked with The National Gallery in London for a number of years on various video production projects and were delighted to be asked to create a series of short films for the 2018-19 blockbuster show ‘Courtauld Impressionists’ featuring works by Manet, Renoir, Van Gogh, Cézanne, Gauguin and many more.

For the first time in London for 70 years the National Gallery displayed major Impressionist and Post-Impressionist masterworks from the Courtauld Gallery, purchased in the 1920s by the industrialist Samuel Courtauld (1876–1947). These were shown alongside paintings from the National Gallery’s own collection which the businessman and philanthropist financed and helped to acquire.

The video production involved creating five films: an introduction film, and then one film for Cézanne, Renoir, Seurat and Manet with each one focusing on two major works in the exhibition. The filming was done in the gallery outside of public hours to give us the time to capture these stunning paintings and engaging and informative interviews with the show's curator, Anne Robbins. The result is a series of elucidating videos and shorter versions for promotion on the gallery's social media channels.

As a leading video agency in London we’ve worked with many of the capital’s preeminent art galleries and a number abroad also: The National Gallery, the V&A, Tate Britain, Tate Modern, the Prado Museum, the Sorolla Museum, The Whitechapel Gallery, the South London Gallery, Bloomberg Space, the ICA to name a few.
