Secret City Zoetermeer: Crane troubles

31 Jul

A short clip from our adventures during “Secret City Zoetermeer” with Andrew Brooks in 2011.

Joined by Coert Gummels from our hosts Stadsmuseum Zoetermeer we were shown around the Van Omme & De Groot Oosterheem development on the north east edge of the city.  All was going fine as we headed up the 85m tower crane until things get a little hairy around 3.55…

Worth it for this shot though:


The Truth: The Story of UK Hip Hop (full documentary)

30 Jul

Later this week we’ll be launching the new Curated Place website.  To celebrate we’ll be posting some of our highlights from past productions, starting with “The Truth” a film made with director Teddy Nygh for our 2009 exhibition “Homegrown”.

The brief was simple – make the most comprehensive documentary covering the development of UK Hip Hop from its origins to today told by the people that created the scene.  The result is a film that brings together legendary names of the UK scene – from Saxon Sounds through Rodney P, Roots Manuva to Giggs and Sway all telling their part in the story that makes up a uniquely British music and a uniquely British culture.
