Airborne Assault

GT Productions commissioned Toast to post produce all the video elements for a new Airborne Assualt Museum located at Duxford Airfield in Cambridgeshire.  The installation and design by RDWP Ltd. is designed to promote the heritage of The Parachute Regiment and Airborne Forces; to educate and inspire those serving; to commemorate the actions of past and present members; and to inform and interest the public. It tells the story from the regiment's creation in 1940 to the present-day campaigns in Afghanistan and Iraq.  Jonathan Swinfen from GT Productions and Toast’s co-founder John Gradwell have worked together on many corporate video, commercial, TV and museum projects ranging from Shakespeare’s Globe to JVC and Disney.  Working from archive footage from the Parachute Regiment and the Imperial War Museum archive, 16 films were created with graphics from Dave King, an original score by Robert Hartsthorne and additional editing by Emily Harris. The museum was opened by HRH Prince Charles on the 9th of November 2008.
