Whitten Timber has been providing its services since 1919 to not only Peckham, but across the UK. Now a specialist timber merchant, its aim is to provide customers with efficient service to a high standard of quality. Passed down through generations of the Whitten family, the business has seen many changes to Peckham, but still maintains its place as a top quality specialist timber merchant & continues to thrive under the pressure of an ever-changing economic climate.
Through spending time at Whitten Timber, you get a real sense of character & personality, something we wanted to show within the film, however we decided to take a different approach to the generic documentary format. Through using slow paced visuals as a means to observe the Timber yard, we achieved a film that shows the hidden beauty within a usually fast paced environment. Through audio we were able to capture the personality & atmosphere, allowing the character of the place to be shown alongside strong visual elements.
