Job Title: Terror at Tatton |Client: National Trust
What was involved?...
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!
Formula 86 Delayed Action Mouse-Maker
Families were challenged to find all the ingredients for Formula 86 Delayed Action Mouse-Maker. However, in a haunted house full of mysterious witches it was important to keep an eye out for real witches who like nothing more than using the potion to turn children into mice!
As they ended of their journey around the haunted house children peered into a mirror where they got turned into a mouse, based on the mouse character from the Witches. The mouse character then mimicked the movement and expression of the user. For example, tilting your head or blinking your eyes.
