We were delighted to be asked to create the interactive area of the Ford Madox Brown website for the gallery. We saw an opportunity to create something different and very engaging that would really capture the children’s attention.

The 2 days' filming we did onsite were terrific. I really felt involved in something new and different. The actors were very professional and the high definition video equipment was state of the art. I couldn’t wait to get the footage back to the studio and begin work mixing it with the images of the painting to enable the characters in the painting to come to life.

Thanks to recent progress in web technologies such as flash and connection speeds, we’ve been able to develop a very rich experience without compromising audio or video quality. A considerable amount of time was needed to edit and prepare all the video clips for inclusion. We worked hard to ensure that the colours in the video matched as closely as possible to their painted counterparts.

I believe the result represents a new and exciting approach to engaging with children and teaching using a work of art.
