We were asked to create a film that introduced Principia’s past, present, and future. With 125 years of history, hundreds of hours of archived footage, thousands of photos, and multiple books to serve as a guide - it was no small task - but it was a joy.
Every monumental moment in this school's history was carefully documented and the school's archive dept. provided us with photos from the 1900s and footage of the campus dating back as early as the 1920s.
We chose to focus our script on "building", not just the expansive school facilities but the structure of education at the Principia. The foundation was built 125 years ago, but it continues building today.
