The videos

The Mona Lisa and American Gothic short videos, as well as being (we hope) amusing, illustrate the themes of Imagination Potential and Intellectual Property. Please click on the relevant tab to see the video again and to read a short article on how these themes are connected, both with each other and with the story in each video.  They were made by Crow’s Eye Productions, a specialist video making company from Lincoln.  See the Links for their web site.
