TATE BRITAIN WILLIAM BLAKE EXHIBITION TRAILER

TATE BRITAIN / WILLIAM BLAKE (2019) - exhibition trailer

Directed by Sam Gainsborough

A trailer for Tate Britain’s major 2019 exhibition on painter, printmaker and poet William Blake sees his works digitally “graffitied” and animated, bringing to life the characters in Blake’s paintings as giant spectres inhabiting the London streets he once frequented. This high profile campaign culminated in Sam Gainsborough's animations being projected onto the domed roof of St. Pauls Cathedral in the heart of London. 

As well as composing the music, Seymour also recorded & produced the voice over which features actor Jasmine Blackborow performing selected highlights from Blake's poem Auguries of Innocence.
