Voyage through history in an immersive series of exhibitions that put you at the helm We worked with Royal Museums Greenwich to develop installations for the National Maritime Museum’s new Endeavour Galleries as part of a multi-million pound investment funded by the Heritage Lottery fund. The proposal included three interactive tables, a 22 screen synchronized installation, a Pepper’s Ghost of a 17th century shipyard & 3 large projections.

‘Develop five installations for their new Endeavour Gallery.’
In response to the brief we coordinated our art directors and digital team to create the three interactive tables. We kept the configuration of each table consistent but the content was unique to each – we used projection mapping to integrate three dimensional props which were placed on the table creating a unique sense of depth and authenticity.
During the conceptualization stages we understood that the Museum wanted to bring historical information to life in a captivating and engaging way. Using old maps, maritime charts, drawings and paintings we wanted to capture the public’s attention and imagination, spanning across a variety of visual platforms and set ups.
“The New Galleries are absolutely fabulous. These galleries are very, very different… They engage you in a way that I think you’ll find extraordinary.” – Sir David Attenborough
In our Shipyard Model exhibit we worked with the Museum to shoot a green screen live action shoot where we dressed actors in period costume coordinated by The National Theatre. We cut the footage in house and used a Pepper’s Ghost effect to superimpose the shipyard workers onto the model for a magical result.
