Criccieth Castle

Along the rocky peninsula/promontory overlooking Tremadog Bay sits the ruins of Criccieth Castle. Perched on a headland with the North Welsh Sea at its feet, the castle is home to picturesque views and an intimidating vantage point to would-be attackers – Perhaps explaining why it changed hands between the Welsh Princes and English Monarchs so much throughout the years in its brief life as a stronghold.

To help people learn about the lives of those around the area during the English and Welsh conflict, Cadw and Headland asked the Ducks to imagine a day in the life of the Welsh Prince as he visits Criccieth Castle. This was imagined as 3 films set throughout the day each featuring an animated character talking directly to the viewer who is cast as the Prince.

The films are shown inside an imagined Llys (court) designed by our friends at Headland Design situated in the refurbished visitor centre, creating an immersive and atmospheric experience where the visitor selects the film they want to watch by touching an object on the table.

Along with these films we created an aerial film, including CGI of how the castle would have looked, which will stay with you as you venture up the hill to take in the scenic sights Criccieth offers.

Lyme Park

The house at Lyme Park was transformed for Christmas into a rich, sensory Edwardian Christmas.

This Christmas experience was inspired by the book ‘Treasure on Earth’; an evocative & nostalgic text written by Phyllis Legh & first published in 1952. This text tells the story of Phyllis’s experiences of ‘Vyne’ (Lyme) at Christmas in 1906. The text glows with love & warmth, and gives wonderful descriptions of how the house looked and felt at Christmas and New Year, “The door of the saloon opened on a scene of almost unreal loveliness”

We wanted to challenge ourselves with a cost effective approach, that would allow people to be surprised with the magic of Christmas while giving the AV a light touch feel to the overall experience.
