Bristol Old Vic – The House is Open

A collaboration with Aardman Animations on a historic short film

Bristol Old Vic

We were commissioned by Bristol Old Vic Theatre to produce and deliver two new media heritage works to be exhibited in their incredible foyer space, at the newly refurbished theatre. The short animation was produced in collaboration with Aardman Animations and we also worked with local historians to uncover the world famous theatre’s 252 year history.

The animation was projection mapped onto an exposed wall that was part of the original architecture and was played every evening before a show began. After the success of the first projection-mapped animation, Bristol Old Vic then commissioned us to create a mirror animation that marked the end of the evening too!
