Up the Runners and Risers

It has been a fascinating process filming British sculptor John W. Mills’ “Kicking Donkey” sculpture through its various stages of development. Kingstreetimages was making a film about John’s long and distinguished career as a sculptor while he was creating the sculpture of the donkey in the studio. And during that process we were commissioned to make a film about the donkey’s progress, and ultimately its journey to its site in Guernsey.

It has been incredible to see how such a large piece of work is created and disassembled ready for transportation to Pangolin Editions foundry in Chalford, Gloucestershire. We’ve filmed the foundry’s technicians creating latex and fiberglass moulds. And recently we were back filming at the West Country foundry nr Stroud while sections of the donkey were being produced in wax before runners and risers were added ready for bronze casting.

We will be returning to Pangolin Editions soon to film the finishing and patination of “Kicking Donkey” before it heads across the English Channel to the island of Guernsey where a site is being prepared.

Is it ever too early to think about documenting or promoting your work? your gallery? your business? your museum?

We’re always happy to have a chat about how we can create films and content for you.

Absolutely Online Soon


We’ve been working with Hertfordshire’s Lowewood Museum’s Youth Panel over the last few months producing a short film. From early ideas, a script was created and the project took shape. The film was shot at weekends and in the evenings when the panel was available. It was a busy time for the Youth Panel what with revision, school, work, civic commitments, Snapchat, Instagram, and Christmas even popped up unexpectedly.
Absolutely will be arriving online very soon.


Is it ever too early to start?

The River

Something constant about the Thames. Whatever the time of day or time of year it’s there. Irrespective of what else is happening wherever in the world that may be the Thames is there. And it will still be there long afterwards.
