 Michael Sailstorfer’s Folkestone Digs, which caused a mini gold-rush on the beaches of Folkestone after we buried £10,000-worth of gold ingots in the sand, and then invited the public to come and dig it up. Sailstorfer’s aim was to bring back that feeling of adventure and exploration he had felt as a child. 

 The project saw the beach come back to life as grandparents, parents, children, grave-diggers, archaeologists, people with metal detectors, people with kitchen colanders came down to the sea to dig for gold. 

Our role as a production company was to asses risk, promote the event, travel to Folkestone and be on-site as the work progressed.
