Bentley Priory Officially Opened by Prince Charles

13. September 2013

Bentley Priory

Officially opened on 12th September by Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, Bentley Priory was the home of the RAF Fighter Command during the Battle of Britain.

Working closely with designer Neal Potter, we created a 10 minute immersive AV show which imaginatively brings to life the original office of Air Chief Marshall, Sir Hugh Dowding, exploring his vital contribution to the Battle of Britain through the development of a sophisticated interception system. Combining small re-enactment scenes with archive material and motion graphic elements, it makes imaginative use of various projection surfaces including walls, ceiling, mirror & a gauze reveal to produce a dynamic and exciting film.

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.

Stonehenge 360° Immersive CGI Experience

26. April 2013

Stonehenge 360

Centre Screen has recently been appointed to produce media for an immersive 360 degree experience at the heart of English Heritage’s new multi-million pound visitors’ centre at Stonehenge.

The ambitious film will be created entirely using computer generated 3D imagery which will wrap around the visitor to capture the ‘experience’ of actually standing within the ancient stone circle.

The aim is to transport visitors back to key points in the development of the site as well as convey something of the unique quality of this prehistoric monument at pivotal moments in the year.

After a highly competitive tender process Centre Screen is delighted to be awarded such a prestigious contract. The client’s tender documents call this “the most important and high profile piece of audio visual ever undertaken by English Heritage”.

We are looking forward to working with the client and exhibition design team at Haley Sharpe to meet these high expectations over the coming months. The visitors’ centre is due to open later this year.

Stirling Castle is voted as the UK’s favourite heritage attraction!

8. October 2012

Stirling Castle

Which? Magazine has recently voted Stirling Castle as the UK’s favourite heritage attraction.

Working with Designers Studio Arc, Centre Screen created an engaging large scale AV show for the new Stirling Heads Gallery which imaginatively brings to life the stories of the many surprising sculptures that adorn James V’s Palace. The film was shot on location at the Castle with a well known Scottish presenter, and using an extremely large camera crane that enabled us to get high enough up the castle walls to capture up-close and personal views of these engaging works of art – a unique challenge given the unpredictable Scottish climate of wind and rain!

The Giant’s Causeway opens!

19. July 2012

Giants Causeway Opens

This week sees the opening of the brand new visitor centre at The Giant’s Causeway, one of Northern Ireland’s premier tourist attractions.

Working alongside Event Communications and the National Trust, we created a range of innovative AV, audio and digital interactive exhibits which explore this ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’ and Northern Ireland’s only World Heritage Site.

Our work included the creation of the “Boat Journey”, a light-hearted historical drama, that was filmed out in the wild Irish sea – and viewed by visitors in a scenic boat within the visitor centre.

“Chocolate – York’s Sweet Story” is open now!

5. April 2012

Chocolate Yorks Sweet Story

York has always been a sweet city and has a long association with confectionery production.  We recently worked with visitor attraction experts Continuum to produce two AV exhibits for a brand new experience which opened on the 31st March 2012.

“Origins” is a 160°projection which uses newly shot footage and an evocative audio soundscape to tell the story of the Origins of chocolate.  Shot on the RED, Aztec and Mayan warriors and Spanish Conquistador Hernan Cortes were filmed on green screen in a London studio.  Background ‘rainforest plates’ were then shot at Kew Gardens and both were combined to create a dramatic and evocative Central American world without leaving the UK.

Senior Motion Graphic Designer Daniel Lusby said … “Multi-layer compositing with RAW 4K files was always going to be tricky, but to motion track and extend over 50 shots seamlessly to fill a 7K resolution screen was certainly a challenge!”

The second exhibit “Founding Families” is a series of animated talking portraits that give the visitor an insight into the famous confectioneers of York such as Rowntree’s and Terry’s.  Characters were filmed green screen and embedded within realistic environments accordingly to their period.  Characters and backgrounds were then treated and animated in After-Effects to suit their environments.
