Milton Keynes Theatre landscaping and foyer preparations
This 33 minute film shows landscaping and foyer preparations at the theatre. The only sound is back ground noise.
It starts with views of a room with paint pots and equipment; rubbish surrounding a spiral staircase and a welder working on what may be a ventilation grill filing the support bracket.
00:01:57 cuts to an outside view of workmen at the yet to be landscaped area to the left of the theatre. It shows the area by the side of the art gallery as bare ground fronted by a stepped design. A wider shot shows the walkway from the Campbell park underpass in a state of partial completion. Then a shot of a sculpture called “The Object” by Dhruva Mistry surrounded by earth.
00:04:45 cuts back inside the theatre showing workers performing various construction tasks. Michael Craig-Martin(?) is shown painting his sculpture depicting the creative activities in the theatre with a roller. It cuts to a window cleaner working on a mechanical lift and then workmen manoeuvring a wooden desk though a doorway.
00:09:43 we see six people in suits, high visibility vests and hard hats being shown round the site by a man in a suit and hardhat. The sound is indistinct. We then see workmen performing various tasks and the window cleaner cleaning the windows at the front of the building.
00:19:04 it cuts to a view of an incomplete piece of work by Edward Allington and then to an unknown artwork before cutting to Alison Turnbull working on her piece of art based on a 19th century map of the moon. This cuts to a view outside of a man working on one of the granite blocks before coming back inside and showing various shots of work taking place indoors. We then cut back to Alison Turnbull and two men working on her artwork. We then see the installation of one of Estelle Thompsons two pieces of work.
