An excellent pilot project/example of engagement carried out at National Trust Stowe recently with a group of young film makers. Both ‘The Making of’ and the final ‘What would you do if you were Capability Brown today?’ videos speak perfectly for themselves, and offer an amusing and different perspective on Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown.
Light hearted it may be, but the audience reaction was very positive when the films were shown at the ‘New Ways of Looking at Brown’ event; organised by the Capability Brown Festival team on November 10th 2014.
If you represent an organisation that is looking for a new way of engaging audiences, this could be a very effective route, especially for the age group of those who produced and featured in the videos shown below. A different title, location and group could tackle the same subject from a range of perspectives – the sky is the limit! Generic Learning Outcomes were used to guide and evaluate the project.
The project was supported by National Trust, Heritage Lottery Fund and Capability Brown Festival.
