Treasurer’s House in York is a National Trust property containing an unusual collection of historic artefacts. The NT Marketing Coordinator came up with the idea of creating an oddities tour/trail. This was a prime candidate for themed and fresh web content.

Working in collaboration with the National Trust and YorkMix, VIDAVEO produced a series of 5 short episodes, each one concentrating on a different feature from the collection. The working title was ‘Everything tells a story’.

The regional curator presented the pieces, which worked out very well, thanks to his charismatic and eloquent delivery.

It was an excellent way of uncovering the collection and teasing visitors into wanting to know more and of course, visit Treasurer’s House.

I just wanted to drop a note as a personal thank you to you and your team for the video project we completed recently at Treasurer’s House. From the start and planning I felt confident in your delivery and capabilities. You understood our aims for what we were trying to deliver and had a good insight from your experience of how to achieve this. On the day you worked tirelessly to get the shots we needed, taking full care and consideration for the historic environment you were filming in, and around visitors and others in the rooms. The shots are rich and opulent and perfect for the project and I really appreciate your edits to get to the desired final products. It was a joy to work alongside you and the videos are a testament to the project.
