Claire’s Show Reel

Here’s my showreel showing television work on BBC1’s Animal Park and DIY SOS.

Animal Park was part of my design work for Lord Bath at Longleat. I’d worked there for 14 years remodeling the top floor and creating his Private Apartment and Banqueting Suite. He’d long harbored a wish to paint the Great Hall at Longleat in his own psychedelic colour scheme. Not being allowed to do this, we photographed the room and computer enhanced his own scheme a print of which we displayed in the Great Hall next to a visitor’s book. It became a bit of a tradition for him to pop down after lunch to see what people had written!

It all show snippets from my series with Nick Knowles and DIY SOS. The question most people ask me is whether we actually do the work in the allotted week and yes we do. Sometimes there’s some fabulous outside help and its always great to meet teams up and down the country. Mostly though it’s as you see. Including the odd afternoon here and there ice skating, horse riding, blowing Billy up at the fire brigade test site. All good fun.
