July 2014 will mark 100 years since the outbreak of the First World War, and the reopening of the Imperial War Museum London is set to coincide with that landmark anniversary.
Amongst the brightest in the capital’s dazzling firmament of historical repositories, the Imperial War Museum is currently closed while it undergoes major renovations.
Part of those renovations is establishment of a new First World War Galleries, telling the stories of those who lived and fought during that global conflict.
In service of the creation of those Galleries, the Imperial War Museum sought out a video production company to create a special fundraising film – entrusting Spectrecom with the task.
The film we produced is now online; it tells some of those WWI stories with contributions from across the generations – from 16-year-old Elana, whose great-grandfather was a soldier in the War, to Baroness Shirley Williams, whose mother lost her finance to the conflict.
Simple, powerful and moving, you can watch the film below. To give credit to those Spectrecommers who worked on it, it was directed by Andrew Greener and produced by Florence Hill, and took in contributions from Peter Ford, Sophie Lee and Jonny Franklin.

Spectrecom lends it video production skills to some of the biggest charities in the UK, including Marie Curie, Macmillan Cancer Support, the RSPCA and the National Trust. Take a look at our Charity Marketing page to see find out more about why these charities choose to work with us.
