Samuel Pepys: Plague, Fire and Revolution – the temporary exhibition currently running at the National Maritime Museum – which we had the pleasure of working on – has been attracting quite a bit of attention….
With less than 3 weeks until it closes, it seems everyone who is anyone has made a visit to the largest ever exhibition about the famous 17th century diarist Samuel Pepys.
The latest visitor HRH Prince Philip seems to be quite enjoying the experience as he is guided by Robert Blyth – one of the Exhibition’s curators.
If you are planning to visit the exhibition, be sure not to miss our AV interpretation of the Great Fire of London (among several others!) and catch the guided tour to get all the hidden stories about the objects in the Exhibition!
Our work at The Norwegian Olympic Museum wrapped up this month with the installation of our incredible centrepiece ski slope animation. One of our Directors, Paul Kucharski, will be at the official opening this evening where he will meet H.M The Queen of Norway.
We will post images of the opening night as soon as possible but until then, here is a short video produced by the museum. Check out the Northern Lights!
Design A Wig, an online game created by Centre Screen for the Victoria and Albert Museum, has gone viral, gaining 90,000 unique page views in two days. The game allows players to unleash their inner Marie Antoinette and create their own elaborate 18th Century style headpieces. The designs can then be shared on social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
Despite going live in December, it wasn’t until a Reddit thread in the New Year that Design A Wig exploded online, gaining masses of interest and receiving coverage from several major news outlets. Running under the headline “We Can’t Stop Designing Insane 18th-Century Wigs”, The Huffington Post described Design A Wig as “seriously addicting”, while fashion bible Harper’s Bazaar said it was “the best way to spend your Monday.”
With design elements including bizarre and elaborate accessories (including an entire miniature ship), it’s easy to see why the game has been such a hit online. If you send your masterpieces to our twitter account @centrescreenuk, we might even give you a mark out of ten.
