I got commissioned by the Royal Institution to make a film detailing the origins of Xray Crystallography.
It was a real pleasure and privilege to learn about the fascinating work of the father and son team who invented it, a technique that has contributed to 29 Nobel Prizes so far.
Interviewing Lawrence Bragg’s youngest Daughter Patience was particularly cool, she was really inspiring, interesting, lovely, and baked me a pie, that’s a powerful combination that doesn’t happen too often.
It was great to take a somewhat hard to penetrate subject and break it down into its parts; telling the narrative whilst intertwining it with the science.
Hopefully I succeeded. It’s my longest short film to date at just under 9minutes, 1/10th feature length, so who knows by this time next year…
