‘Ships, Clocks & Stars: The Quest for Longitude’ is an exciting new exhibition due to open at the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich in July, this year. Centre Screen are pleased to be producing several large scale projections and an audioscape, which tell the story of the quest to determine longitude whilst at sea during the 18th and 19th centuries.
The imaginative exhibits help to provide context for visitors, emphasising why the accurate measurement of longitude at sea was vitally important and the impact it has had on our world today. The notable characters of the story will be introduced through clever animation techniques on a table-top projection and an audioscape will immerse visitors in the sounds of the day and allow them to eavesdrop on snippets of conversation.
Marking the 300th anniversary of the Longitude Act, this exhibition is part of a range of activities hosted by the Royal Museums Greenwich group of museums. You can read more about this on their website here.

Following a competitive tender process, Centre Screen are delighted to be producing an interactive content delivery system for the British Library. With the flexibility to operate across a number of exhibitions, we are developing a digital content application to encourage visitors to explore the very best of the Library’s extensive collections of sound archives, contemporary art installations and more conventional mixed-media social history, offering curated interpretation of the collections as well as interpretation of objects on display. Back-end administration will be delivered through an online CMS, allowing the curatorial team to easily and quickly update content for new exhibitions when needed.
For this project, we are excited to be collaborating in a unique partnership with Manchester Metropolitan University’s Digital Labs, offering dedicated specialised software developers and access to diverse user group testing.

We are very excited to have recently been awarded a contract to create all the AV and Interactive software for the new Richard III Visitor Centre, due to open later this year in Leicester.
Following the incredible discovery of Richard III’s remains underneath a Leicester car park, this new ￡4m visitor centre is to be created in the old Leicester Grammar School building, overlooking where the king was buried over 500 years.
The exhibition (designed by Studio MB) will tell the fascinating story of the archeological dig, Richard III’s life itself, and the many scientific processes undertaken to confirm his identity.
We are creating over 17 AV exhibits for the visitor centre including several large-scale projections and touchscreen interactives that explore Richard’s life, death and his more recent discovery.
The exhibits are still top-secret at the moment, so unfortunately we can’t share any images with you just yet, but watch this space for more exciting updates!

Centre Screen is currently producing all of the audio visual and audio soundscape exhibits for the new Bentley Priory Museum, which is due to open in September 2013. The Bentley Priory Battle of Britain Trust was formed to ensure preservation of RAF Bentley Priory’s pivotal role in the Battle of Britain during WW2.
One of the exhibits we are producing is a timed audio visual projection show, telling the story of how Air Chief Marshall Hugh Dowding developed the ‘Dowding System of Air Defence’ and his role in the subsequent winning of the Battle of Britain. The film will use various animation techniques, audio narration and newly shot footage to re-tell his story in a exciting, dynamic and visually interesting way.

We are currently working on two short documentaries for the East Peak Innovation Partnership.
These films are based on researching the history and landscape surrounding the Silkstone Waggonway and Rockley Furnace Engine House.
The archaeological study in these films invites the people of Yorkshire to learn about their Industrial heritage.
