Animals in War

Installation  |  Animals in War  |  Imperial War Museum North

Our work with IWM North spans almost 15 years now, creating numerous Big Picture Shows that utilise 3D, 2D and analogue techniques to create stories and environments within their bespoke 360˚ immersive space. Animals in War combines digital composite animation, stop-frame and shot content to create a playful yet grounded exploration into the role of animals in wartime.

Get down to IWM to see it when you can :)
