IRONBRIDGE GORGE MUSEUMS.

The Ironbridge Gorge was the cradle of the Industrial revolution, driven by two key industries that lined the banks of the valley: iron-making and china.

Today, a unique collection of 10 Museums re-tell the story of these industries and the contribution they made not just to Britain, but the world. In fact, the Ironbridge Gorge is designated a World Heritage Site.

The Museums Trust wanted two videos: a 10-minute video to be shown to visitors at the Museum of Iron and a longer 30-minute version of the same story to sell on DVD.

Our first and biggest challenge was the script. We worked together with the Museum's curators and academics to digest a fairly complex story of engineering and technological breakthroughs, driven by larger-than-life characters like the Darby dynasty.


We wrote the longer script first, then produced a cut-down version for the shorter visitor video.

Shooting took place over a three-month period as we filmed many of the traditional processes which are still in action today: iron casting & rolling, tile making, forging, slip casting, ceramic painting - and so on. We also used re-enactors from the Museum's Blists Hill Victorian Town, to re-create the atomosphere of Ironbridge in its heyday.

It's a unique record of a unique place.
