As well as making the first update on progress on the ship, Maritime Films UK were asked to make a crowd-funding film, in support of a campaign to raise some £19,000 to help the project. To streamline the process, we did a new edit of our first film, and then filmed ‘Kat’ – Katrina Henderson, the Museum’s Learning and Community Engagement Officer – launching the appeal (picture.) Despite it being a bit nippy, and just half an hour to spare before a key meeting, Kat gave of her best! We cut the film the next day, liaising with Membership and Marketing Assistant Laura Nastase throughout. We had fun (though I think Kat and Laura were glad to get back inside for a warm-up!) Go to the National Museum’s Indiegogo page, or visit www.nmrn.org.uk if you can help with a bit of cash.
