    The 1:03 mark of Tin Can's video was shot inside Dimbola Lodge, as I imagine all of the video was. Dimbola is in Freshwater on the west coast of Wight, not far from Alfred Lord Tennyson's home. In the screen capture below, that's the English Channel in the background.

    Search youtube and complain

    How was it made? Calotypes | V&A

    Given some of the posts above, it might be helpful to know why this video was made. It is not a YouTube "how-to-do-it" video.
    if it is really "how its made" this is what it is: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0835010/
    Not sure if it really their short film though ... it might just be something the VA-M produced in house to show people the joy of photography.
    I'm no expert at photography (or anything else for that matter ) and I figured the people producing the video weren't WP experts either, they were just over simplifying a complicated process,
    You know, ... like all those videos people make on that website that last for 2 minutes, they show some sort of exotic food recipe, and they leave out amounts of ingredients and how to actually *make* the dish..

    As successful as How It's Made has been (the show started in 2001), I'm pretty sure that the Victoria & Albert didn't fly a crew from Montrťal, where the show is based, to the Isle of Wight to make a 2:41 film about wet plate collodion As I understand it, the V&A produces its digital content in-house, directly and via freelancers.

    U.K. calotype artist Rob Douglas, who does the demonstration in the video, has a website: Paper, Shadows and Light

    This is the V&A page on Fox Talbot and the Calotype. There are actually two videos. Also a link to Fox Talbot's work in the V&A collection.
