There are so many incredible stories buried in the histories of iconic buildings like Exeter Cathedral. Our challenge was to take our research, which was gathered from working with the Exeter archivists and further research and bring it to life with a compelling narrative. Working with 7 times BAFTA winning script writer and presenter Andrew Chater we crafted a script that told the entire history of Exeter Cathedral in 10 mins.
During pre-production, we visited the Cathedral three times to recce the location. This helped us understand where the Cathedral got busy at certain times during the day and to see where the best light would fall in different parts of the Cathedral throughout the day. It was decided to film at the end of May as this is when the light is at its best and we had the best chance of great weather.
We filmed over two days, being respectful of the working Cathedral and visitors. Using a 24ft jib to give us a unique perspective of the longest continuous medieval stone roof ever built, it also allowed us to showcase the front of the cathedral. Our steadicam allowed for smooth sweeping dramatic shots with the presenter, all adding to the high production values we employed on the film.
Our motion graphics team worked to bring the history to life, transporting the audience back in time with special effects added to the existing footage and giving them a flavour of important moments in Exeter Cathedrals history.
