Cathedral video


Norwich...a story - watch the film!

We’re delighted to share with you an incredible NEW film launching today - 'Norwich...a story', has been created and gifted to Norwich Cathedral by local BAFTA winning film maker, Rob Whitworth. Using a unique ‘flow-mo’ technique (a phrase coined by Rob’s dad) this film joins a select list of destinations across the globe - Ho Chi Minh City, Kuala Lumpur, Shanghai, Barcelona, Pyongyang, Dubai, Sydney, Istanbul and Singapore - for which Rob has created films. This is the first flow-motion film that Rob has made in the UK.  




Rob is a truly accomplished British photographer and urban film maker; he graduated from Norwich School of Art & Design (now Norwich University of the Arts) and has gone on to produce work that has seen him travel all over the world, picking up awards. His latest accolade is a TV Craft BAFTA for his sequences in Planet Earth II for the BBC Natural History Unit. Rob’s also just been nominated for an Emmy!

Rob has created quite a name for himself in hyperlapse and time-lapse photography and has received over 9 million views on his Vimeo channel. Nearly all have received well in excess of a million online views. 

Rob said: “Norwich is a beautiful city with so much history. I've had a great time exploring and filming some of the sights during this project, experiencing some of the best views of Norwich with the aim of capturing them in the best light. When you live somewhere it's easy to not appreciate it, so it was cool to see a familiar place with fresh eyes.”
