RAISING FUNDS TO RESTORE HISTORICAL PAINTINGS
Art Fund helps museums raise money for projects, in this case helping the Wallace Collection, an amazing museum in Central London, gain funds to restore two Canaletto paintings and their frames. The pictures are famous for their views of Venice and have been damaged over the years by layers of varnish and retouching, as well as the colours becoming subdued. The plan is to restore them to their original glory
WHY THEY NEED TO BE SAVED
The film was shot at the Wallace Collection in one day with one camera and following a Chocolate Films script, explaining the history of the paintings and why they are so important. The objective was to raise funds through crowdsourcing while the film explained what needs to be done and who would be doing it.
