We’re honoured that one of our films was part of yesterday’s Diamond Jubilee Concert at Buckingham Palace.
We had contributed, via Youtube, a copy of the film to Historypin’s Pinning the Queen’s History collection. An excerpt was selected to be part of the animation that was projected on Buckingham Palace during the concert.
This is the animation. Our excerpt appears at about 1 minute, and it shows the Queen watching an assembly of children creating a dogwood-flower-shaped formation in Queen Elizabeth park.
Yes, the pin representing our video is stuck in the middle of the Prairies. That’s because it represents the Queen’s 1959 visit to Canada, not Vancouver.
The longer video from which the excerpt was taken is below. You can see the children preparing for their formation, and more of the presentation itself. It is Reference code VPK-S652-: MI-111.
You don’t have to be royalty to use one of our videos. We invite you to find and download some and get creative.
