Client brief I have been asked to produce a documentary for the British Museum to accompany their Lewis Chessmen exhibit. Research notes about British museum The British museum is a museum based in London dedicated to human history and culture. It was established in 1753 filled with physician and scientist named Sir Hans Sloane. The museum was open to the public on January 15th 1759 in Montagu house in Bloomsbury. The British museum is one of the biggest museums in all the countries because it contains over 8 million priceless pieces of human history and culture. As of 2013 there has been over 6 million visitors.

Research notes about Lewis chessmen The Lewis chessmen were found in uig bay in the isle of Lewis in the year 1831. The Chessmen are a group of 78 12th century chess pieces and they are made out of walrus ivory which makes it very valuable. 67 of the chess pieces are currently held in the British museum and the other 11 pieces are held in the national museum of Scotland in Edinburgh. There is some controversy about where the pieces should be kept, some believe that they should be kept in Scotland where they were found and some think that they should be kept in the British museum and some don’t care. What documentary conventions I want to use In my documentary I want to use such conventions as Interviews, archival footage, Voice over's, camera shots, good sound, good use of text. This would be very effective because it would make my documentary look very professional. Having a professionally completed documentary is important because when people watch it and hopefully enjoy it maybe they will consider watching another documentary made by me. Target audience My documentary was targeted at people that wanted to either know more about the chess pieces to if they haven’t seen them before to become familiar and start to be intrigued by them. My whole objective was to get everyone interested in the chess pieces because I think they are very cool pieces.
