Engineering Plymouth is a film commissioned by the Institution of Civil Engineers South West, as part of its 200th anniversary. 14 regional partners and 30 contributing organisations were involved in its creation, including The Box, Plymouth. The film celebrates how civil engineers have helped shape Plymouth and transform the way we live. Narrated by Dawn French, the monumental production brings 500 years of engravings and archive photography to life, following the city’s journey through time before focusing on its future and the people tasked with its current civil engineering projects. Using present day aerial drone, hyper-lapse and 360-degree action cinematography the final film displays Plymouth and its heritage to stunning effect.
