About

Filmed over the course of a day from the top of Cromwell Tower, one of three residential towers on the Barbican estate, Skydweller combines over 5,000 photographs in a stunning timelapse of the view across London.

 

With specially composed music by Tom Rosenthal and poetry by artist, poet and Barbican host, Paul Haworth, this short film offers a unique view of our bustling capital and its residents from the calm above.

With many thanks to the Likierman-Hale family for allowing us to film from their apartment in Cromwell Tower.
