Glass Page recently completed the filming for the last in a series of 10 video podcasts produced for the Leicester Museum Services new dinosaur gallery.
The short films provide a fascinating insight to the hidden stories behind the gallery’s star objects, and include the visitor favourite Rutland Dinosaur, one of the world’s oldest fossils Charnia, and local discoveries such as the Barrow Kipper and the Barwell Meteorite.
Filming for the final “Making of ” podcast took place during the gallery’s launch day on September 2nd, officially opened by Sir David Attenborough.
Our creative director Pete Manship realised a life-long ambition by meeting and interviewing one of his childhood inspirations:
“It was an incredible experience to meet the living legend, Sir David Attenborough, a rare and unique specimen, who lit up the packed museum gallery like a human comet, trailing sparks of inspiration and admiration in his wake.”
As an official sponsor, Glass Page is delighted by the overwhelming public interest in the new gallery from far and wide. The museum has seen a record number of visitors through its doors since the new gallery opened; being visited by 5,244 people on 3 and 4 September compared to an average of 760 during a weekend.
The Dinosaur Gallery films are available to watch on the Leicester Museums & Galleries YouTube channel.
