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.
