A room full of memories…
Sewerby Hall, a Grade 1 listed Georgian country house and park near Bridlington was first opened to the public in 1936 by aviator Amy Johnson. After undergoing a £2.6 million restoration with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund the hall has re-opened as a period–perfect visitor experience and also includes a unique collection of Amy Johnson artefacts. Working with the Curator and Education Officer, we created three very different interpretations to complement the visitor experience:
Perfect Match: A touch-screen game to test your skills as the housekeeper, managing the occasion of a prestigious family wedding and banquet.
Working Lives: a film describing life below stairs for six servants, voiced from period documents and filmed in dream-like slow-motion using costumed volunteers.
Our Amy: a dramatised animation of Amy Johnson’s famous solo flight in 1930 to Australia, the script was developed entirely from the newspaper coverage of the UK’s first media celebrity.
