Albatross Courtship: Process Film

Sep 09, 2019

A short process film behind the Wandering Albatross, an iconic seabird that mates for life.

Our latest screenprint takes inspiration from our combined love of the ocean and seabird conservation. Filmmaker Luke Ripley accompanied us in the studio for the making of this unique piece of artwork, documenting our creative process from sketchbook to silkscreen. The film ends in the Natural History Museum of Oxford, where we launched the artwork amongst the skeletons and cabinets of curiosities. We really couldn’t have asked for a more fitting location!

The result is an intimate handheld film that perfectly captures our collaborative process as brothers and the attention to detail that we strive for within every aspect of our work.

We hope you enjoy this film as much as we did making it.
