Letters from the front
An event to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Great Britains declaration of war against Germany. Broadcast live from Glasgow Cathedral, Westminster Abbey and a special ‘cultural’ ceremony at St. Symphorien near Mons in Belgium.
To bring to life the stories of soldiers fighting at the front using materials sourced from the Imperial War Museum archive.
Combining both stills and extracts from letters sent home to give an insight into the soldiers personal experiences at the front. Using projection mapping, individual elements in the photographs were carefully separated and ‘projected’ onto 3D geometry to create a ‘living’ scene with an immersive sense of depth.
