Executive producer: Patricia Wheatley 

Production Company: 2df Arts & Media

'Gavin came to us to make a short film about a complicated group of people working together in this museum.

From the outset, we were impressed by his sensitivity to the different needs and requirements of working within

a museum environment, and his understanding of the intricacies of our coffins research, which he was able to

translate into a series of incredibly high calibre films. He is an absolute pleasure to work with - professional,

reliable and genuinely interested in the subject matter he is filming and we are looking for opportunities to work

further with him in the future. We have no hesitation in recommending him unreservedly.'. (March 2019)
