A cinematic journey around Banksy’s Dismaland
A cinematic journey around Banksy’s Dismaland. Dismaland was a temporary art project organised by street artist Banksy, constructed in the seaside resort town of Weston-super-Mare in Somerset, England. Prepared in secret, the pop-up exhibition at the Tropicana, a disused lido, was "a sinister twist on Disneyland" that opened during the weekend of 21 August 2015 and closed permanently on September 27, 2015, 36 days later. Banksy described it as a "family theme park unsuitable for children."

Jamie Brightmore aimed to create an aesthetic which married creative visuals and sound, which would translate the essence of Dismaland, so those who didn’t get to go –could get a flavour– and those who did could warm their memories.
Sound was a critical element in conveying the essence of the experience, so he mixed samples, sound effects, and recordings captured on location to compliment the visuals and their undertones. Hopefully Jamie achieved a subtle subconscious flow as you travel around the various art pieces and attractions.
