Stuart Photos Showing the Variety of Tasks & Process of Filming

Photos showcasing the variety of tasks and the process of collaborating between the production team and the academic team

During the journey of the Stuarts-Online project we documented the process of our workshops, scripting together, recording and filming in a variety of venues at the University of Oxford.  An important element of the process of photography was to ensure that there were high quality and consistent head shots of all the speakers.  We therefore took all the portrait photos with the same background in the Old Library at Jesus College, kindly facilitated by a core member of the academic team who hosted our workshops at Oxford, Professor Paulina Kewews. We are very pleased to see that many of our high quality headshots are now used by the academic team for their institituional webpages, aswell as being the key illustrations for the 'about' pages for the Stuarts-Online webpages. And also we needed to capture each pair of speakers 'in conversation' to illustrate the start of the short films discussing original sources.
