Claude Friese-Greene / 1920s London

Claude Friese-Greene - surface and surfaceI saw this today over on Death and Taxes. A rare colour glimpse of London in the 1920’s touched up by the British Film Institute. Claude Friese-Greene made the film with using a technique called Biocolour, innovated by his father. Some nice shots of Hyde park and a stage fraught Bobby in front of Big Ben all nearly 100 years ago. Music by Jonquil and Yann Tiersen. More videos from his film ‘Open Road’ on the BFI’s youtube channel here.
