Heritage Interactive was commissioned to produce digital content for two new displays: ‘Firefight: The Second World War’ and ‘The Field of the Cloth of Gold’.
The Field of the Cloth of Gold display explores one of the most amazing political and sporting events ever staged. Our animation explores the preparations for the tournament and the materials needed to pull off this extravagant event.
The client was keen to appeal to the whole family and was looking for an AV piece that was easily understandable, light in tone and could make the facts and numbers of this huge logistical undertaking more engaging.
Taking our inspiration from Tudor patterns and paintings, we developed new illustrations that bring to life key details from the original expense reports.
THE TONLET ARMOUR
Striking a fighting pose, our Tonlet Armour AV showcases the exceptional mobility of Henry VIII’s armour. Setting up a studio onsite, we filmed a member of the Armouries’ live interpretation team in a replica suit to create a visually impressive and informative exhibit.
HATE FIGHTING AV
For our Hate Fighting AV in the Second World War gallery, we filmed members of the Armouries’ live interpretation team recreating moves from Fairbairn Syke’s manual. Working alongside a copy of the manual on display, the AV helps to dramatically highlight the effectiveness of this lethal training.
