Here at the studio we are using a series of short films to add an exciting new layer to the design process. The films are an invitation to explore. They entice the viewer ever deeper into the garden, penetrate its hidden corners and pause over tiny details of the design.
I worked in the gardens over a period of time to make films that would demonstrate the impact of changing seasons, shifting light and wind on a garden and the plants that grow in it. Even an established garden is constantly changing, and now we have a marvelous way of explaining this constant flux to new clients.
I always take photographs of work in progress, but filming has proved to be a new and interesting technique for examining and reviewing my own designs and planting plans over a period of time. And for our clients the films offer a new and more intimate experience of our work.
