Case study - A mini documentary for Cuckooland (a cuckoo clock museum in Tabley, Cheshire)

In the winter of 2018 we began a series of 360 video recordings at a museum that regularly makes the top ten in lists of uniquely interesting places to visit in the UK. That place was the Cuckooland Cuckoo Clock Museum. The museum directors, Roman and Maz Piekarski, suggested we film a documentary to celebrate the collection's anniversary and to create a commemorative DVD to distribute to their loyal fans and customers.

The journey from the first interview to the final take has seen us recording the sounds of many ancient and fascinating mechanical objects and travelling to the snow-capped peaks of Schwarzwald, where we visited the region's last traditional cuckoo-clock maker and spent time in the charming Furtwangen clock museum.
