When York College Media student Max Critchlow approached York Museums Trust to ask if they had anything suitable he could film for a College project, he was excited to be given the task of making a trailer for York’s forthcoming major new exhibition 'Yorkshire’s Jurassic World'.
Max, formerly of Yarm School, who studies the Extended Diploma in Creative Media Production, describes his video as having ‘distinct Spelbergian touches’ and acknowledges the help he has received from fellow students James Kozelko and Tom Lane.
The trailer begins with a couple enjoying tea in Bettys tearoom when their tea cups start rattling -Jurrasic Park-style! The vibrations continue, surprising a couple of workers outside York Minster and end with a dramatic finale inside the home of the exhibition at the Yorkshire Museum.”
Lee Clark, Communications Manager for York Museums Trust, said: “Max got in touch with the Trust to see if we had anything he could film for a project he was working on. With the opening of our major new exhibition Yorkshire’s Jurassic World later this month, we thought it would be great to work with him on a fun film to promote this. The results are fantastic. Max has done a brilliant job creating a clever and concise film which works perfectly as an online tool to raise awareness of the great exhibition opening soon at the Yorkshire Museum.”
'Yorkshire’s Jurassic World' is an epic journey back through 150 million years of Yorkshire to discover lost giants and the changing worlds they inhabited. Sir David Attenborough will officially open the exhibition at the Yorkshire Museum where A Level Geology students from York College, having won a competition to attend a Q&A session, will meet Sir David. The exhibition is open to the public from 24th March and will run into 2019.
