MAJOR PROJECTS

THE ISTANA DARUL HANA MEMORIAL MUSEUM, BRUNEI

 

This museum was built to commemorate the life of the previous Sultan of Brunei, father of the present Sultan.

Good Looking Pictures produced 18 videos for the museum - three of them are video walls and three are multi-screen projections.

The subject matter ranges from historical material, through life in modern Brunei to a small dramatic piece about the discovery of oil in the 1920's.

The productions required extensive film and picture research through archives around the world, the transportation to Britain of 120 films from the Brunei State Archive and the copying to digital video tape of fifty of these.

Four weeks' location hunting preceded a five-week location shoot in Brunei which included filming in mosques, schools, hospitals, and shopping centres as well as on the water villages and in the rain forest.
