The National Churches Trust is a charity dedicated to the preservation of churches and church buildings. The challenge was to create a short, compelling film about the charity that could be used at events and conferences to help to attract new members.
It was decided that the use of animation would help tell the story in a simple yet arresting way, and a tight script ensured every second counted. Moreover Sir Michael Palin, one of the charity’s vice presidents, agreed to record the voice – over.
Naturally the production budget was very, very lean.
The film has been well received internally and has started to be used at events.
