ACTION! was the order of the day at Lindsell Art Gallery when a production company came to film a day's activities.
The filming was part of a new initiative by gallery owner, John Garrett, to enhance the website and give visitors a taste of the range of art, gifts, courses and services offered. It has been funded by an Essex Life Raft Trust grant from Essex County Council.
Ex-BBC producer and director Martin Bisiker from Flock has worked with presenters like Sarah Beeney, Nick Knowles and Davina Mcall on shows including Great British Menu, House Doctor and the Big Day.
His tour of Lindsell Art Gallery shows the main gallery, the picture framing workshop and a life drawing session, and includes scenes with staff, visitors and artists, giving an insight into the comings and goings at the rural Essex business
Mr Bisiker said: "A website is the pretty much the first port of call for most customers these days, but trying to get a sense of the business's character is very difficult with just words and pictures.
"A well produced video changes that; you can really develop a sense of what a person is like by watching and hearing them."
Mr Garrett said: "This video tour really gives an excellent preview of our business and its activities. There's much more here than people imagine and it's very welcoming and relaxing.
"We hope people will be encouraged to visit us for art, framing or to join in our drawing session."
