Hi all, just wanted to update everyone on the filming situation; I now have the material for 6 short videos (one to two and a half minutes in length), which I shall be assembling soon. I have Greg on the Astbury camera, Liz on the capacitor, Dom on the seeds, Rita on the educational posters, Becky on the printing press, and myself on the hygrometer.
When Mike’s back I’ll be filming him on the Newlyn-Philips machine, and Emily will be doing her short introduction, the transcript of which she has posted below. I will then put the pieces together, edit where necessary, and we will have 8 short videos to go up on our YouTube channel.
This should be a nice project to coincide with the installation of the exhibit in the Sadler building. If anyone has any other objects they want to do, please let me know, because I’m hoping this can be an ongoing, on-growing part of the museum which will serve to consolidate and strengthen our online presence.
UPDATE: You can view all of these 1 minute videos on our YouTube channel here.
