The Layton Collection
The Layton Collection is a fascinating story of hidden treasures, a vast book collection and untold stories. Our brief was to capture the essence and importance of the collection, built up over 70 years and discover the man behind it, along with showing the importance of books in a digital world.
Working closely with our good friends, Paul and Toni at Medioto animation and design, we filmed over two days, being very careful with the delicate books.
The stories and importance of the collection were told through interviews with the trustees and librarians that care for the collection.
Our in-house team used lighting techniques to bring the atmosphere of the collections to life and a macro lens to highlight some of the detail in the incredible drawings and book bindings.
“There is no doubt that working with the team at NRG you know the results are going to be outstanding. Their ability to transform a scene from the mundane to something really stunning has really brought our Layton Collection film into a different league.
Furthermore, working with a really professional crew, brimming with ideas, yet still very personable and friendly is a rare talent and you just know that everyone is invested in making the project into something special.”
