In January 2013, the opportunity to work with film director Will Woodward coincided with our desire to do something special to mark our 20-year association with the Royal Parks. The result was a year-long collaboration and our first landscape film: “20 Years in the Royal Parks”.
The primary purpose of the film was not to promote Colvin & Moggridge, but rather to explore how our Royal Park designs have stood the test of time. Thanks to Will and his team the film has surpassed all our expectations and we’re proud to have collaborated in the creation of a short documentary-style film that is not only beautiful and evocative to watch, but also informative and interesting. The film features seven of the parks’ most well-loved spaces and whilst focusing on how the public use those spaces today, throughout the four seasons, it also goes back in time to explore the history of each space and the inspiration for its redesign. Our thanks also extends to Andy Mytom of David Morley Architects who co-presented our “The Hub, Regent’s Park” feature.
Last week the film premiered in Soho. We’d like to thank all those who came along to share what turned out to be a very special evening with us last Wednesday – we’re thrilled with the results, as are the Royal Parks and look forward to sharing our first venture into the world of landscape film with many more.
