Production Blog, Studio Days and Perspective.

Hello supporters and interested parties.

We are in the middle of production and today find ourselves in our studio in northwest London.

Over the last few weeks we have been capturing views from different perspectives.  There is art in the landscape and gaining the right view provides its own perspective. 

On the first day of filming we began by trekking up a steep hill to get a cityscape panoramic view.  Somehow the energy invested represents our drive for this project.  At the top of the hill we found a viewpoint and captured the city, building works and cranes in the foreground, the financial district in the background and everywhere green leafy trees.  Perspective.  A view earned after a steep hill climb is something, but there is something communal about the urban landscape that perhaps we can learn from.   The extent to which community and no one individual is responsible for the creation of the beautiful urban landscape should not be lost when we consider the taxing question of land.

We have to date filmed commercial districts, looming skyscrapers and office blocks, we have captured a magistrate’s court, bus station and tramlines, we have captured town centres, crossrail development and panoramic views. All in all the images are beautiful.

We have also started to develop our animation.  Taking inspiration from the works of CGP Grey and Activist Animations, we have started to develop our own animations to help explain concepts and assist narration.

But over the next few days we capture the ideas; we meet the people and hear what experience and various viewpoints have to offer.  Perspective.
