Touring Heritage Exhibition

Working in collaboration with the heritage team at Rugby League Cares, we created a touring exhibition designed to reach out and engage with local communities through the subject of Rugby League and its sporting and social history. The exhibition comprises of eight themes; from the influence of women and minorities in Rugby League, to the amateur game, France and the fans. 

We also designed and commissioned a series of
portable, custom exhibition cases and plinths, designed
to showcase a number of artefacts relating to the sport.

Traces

We recently worked with Traces, an organisation that works with museums across Europe to embrace technology, and develop digital experiences within museum environments.

With 3 x 3 day cross-border workshops open to European museums, we created an animation to attract and engage with workshop participants across Europe. The aim of the workshops is to transfer knowledge and educate museum professionals, together with experts and students, in the deployment of innovative digital technologies to communicate and engage with new or existing audiences.

The three workshops are each at different locations across Europe, covering digital engagement and strategy (Denmark), digital storytelling (Belgium) & Innovative digital technologies (Netherlands).

MOSI

Discovering the Museum of Science & Industry

Building an insight into the museum where Manchester’s Industrial and technological routes are brought to life; across a super-wide 3 screen within the mesmerising entrance hall to ensure eager anticipation of the journey to come.

Using pre-existing unused footage of the museum we were asked to create a film that welcomed visitors to the museum, giving them a hint of what to expect on their visit. We then designed and produced a beautiful motion graphic, depicting the science and steam that is Manchester’s Museum of Science & Industry.

Screened on the huge video wall in the Revolution Manchester entrance hall we combined the footage with animation, kinetic typography and atmospheric soundscapes to deliver a film that showcases MOSI’s unique visitor experience.

Hastings Pier

Hastings Pier re-opened in April 2016 and we were asked to create a film for the visitor centre, to entertain and inform adults and children about the history of the pier.

Broken up into six key sections, the stories are brought to life by animated characters. Using a traditional paper puppet style to replicate the vibe of the seaside holiday, we ensured that the show was both amusing and engaging to keep children entertained.To accompany the show we also created printable colouring sheets and cut out split-pin puppets to be used in educational sessions.

Warrington Wolves

“In south-west Lancashire, babes don’t toddle, they side-step. Rugby League is a physical manifestation of our rules of life, comradeship, honest endeavour and a staunch allegiance to fair-play”  Colin Welland

A heritage project close to our heart and roots in Warrington, Fuzzy Duck and the Wolves Foundation spent 12 months working together on the huge project of documenting the rich history of Warrington Wolves Rugby League Club and the town they represent.

After securing Heritage Lottery funding, we produced a 100 metre long timeline, supported by augmented reality, motion graphics, poetry and two, 12 minute documentaries.

Warrington is a town with a rising population and we were determined to have these newcomers understand and learn to love the sport, the team, the town.

The project was awarded bronze in the 2013 Fresh Creative Awards, Best Breakthrough category.

Atkinson Museum

The Atkinson Museum in Southport has a large range of ancient Egyptian artefacts thanks to a wealthy Victorian lady named Anne Goodison. Anne Goodison was from Bootle and was fascinated with Egyptology. She visited Egypt twice in the late 1880s and brought back a wide selection of artefacts which were housed in a ‘museum room’ in her family home near Crosby.

After Anne’s death in 1906, her husband had no interest in the collection and so donated it to the Bootle Museum in 1908. After the museum’s closure in 1974, the collection was taken to Southport for safe storage. Now for the first time in 40 years, items from the collection are now back on display at The Atkinson.

Terror at Tatton

2016 saw the national trust take part in celebrating 100 years since the birth of Roald Dahl. Throughout the year they partook in a number of activities which took the theme from some of the stories that he told in his books.

Tatton Park took families on a scare fest around the haunted Old Hall for Halloween. Children had to find all the ingredients for Formula 86 Delayed Action Mouse-Maker from Roald Dahl’s, The Witches.

In a park full of Roald Dahl witchy mischief, we used technology that tracked facial movements turning children in to mice when they peered into a magic mirror!

Churches Conservation Trust

The Churches ConservationTrust (CCT) is the national charity protecting historic churches at risk. CCT have saved over 340 buildings which attract almost two million visitors a year. Their unique collection of English parish churches includes irreplaceable examples of architecture, archaeology and art from 1,000 years of history.

Keen to increase visitor footfall CCT wanted to reinterpret the way that the churches use their incredible spaces in order to engage with existing and new audiences. We’ve worked on pieces for a number of churches around the UK, including Bristol St John, Holy Trinity church in York and Cambridge church.
