100 Years with the National Trust
Cambridge Filmworks go back in time and visit the magnificent National Trust Box Hill, Surrey in it’s centenary year of being in the Trusts care.
Presided over by Director General of The National Trust, Dame Helen Ghosh, the centenary event brought together leading representatives from the Trust, alongside members and volunteers, for a premier of our brand new film and a chance to meet its main contributors.
To capture the hill in all it’s glory we used our UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) to film stunning birds eye views of this unique National Trust property.
Filmworks director Adam said ‘We were commissioned by The National Trust and the Friends of Box Hill to produce a film that really captures the essence of why this site has remained so incredibly special to so many people across the years. Everybody we interviewed was so passionate about the place that it made the film an absolute pleasure to work on.’
Lyn Richards, president of Friends of Box Hill commented ‘Box Hill is such a special place, even more so when you discover that it was saved from the very real risk of being turned into a housing development through the generosity and vision of one man Leopald Salomons. This film is a beautiful tribute to Box Hill over the years.’
