With a grant from The Linder Foundation, we were able to make a documentary about the work and life of Beatrix Potter. We are very proud of the result!
Special thanks to Penguin Random House, The Armitt Museum and Library in Ambleside, the National Trust, the Daito Bunka University in Japan, and Naik Media.
This video film takes viewers on a visual artisitic journey from Beatrix’s ‘Early Life’, ‘Love of Nature’ and early ‘Inspiration’, to her ‘Artwork’ – including her ‘Scientific’ studies – and ‘Books’, delving into her creative genius and unveiling the magic behind her characters and narratives and revealing her artistry and attention to detail. Amongst other topics covered are her ‘Side Shows’ and her ‘Artwork in Japan’ (at the Daito Bunka University Reference Library).
Beatrix’s deep connection with the natural world is evident in her artwork and the video is also a virtual journey through the landscapes that inspired her, leading to her ‘Preservation’ of the Lake District and her ‘Legacy’. Highlights include beautiful drone footage from Hill Top, Cockshott Point and Moss Eccles Tarn, and many other images showcase original items and artwork owned by The Beatrix Potter Society.
