We’re delighted to announce that the Anglo Saxon Princess Exhibition at Kirkleatham Museum has won a Journal Culture Award.
Media Arts were part of the project team and worked on many aspects of the exhibition over a two year period.
The awards were held in Durham last night and the Princess was up against Beamish Museum and the Great North Museum – both fantastic attractions.
Over a two year period we worked alongside the museum and the archaeologist who found the fantastic finds that now take centre stage in the exhibition.
As well as working with the project team in designing the exhibition itself we were responsible for the creation of the opening film, which we convinced actor Stephen Tompkinson to voice (actually he didn’t need any convincing and very kindly agreed to do it!).
The film was shot in several locations including West Stow in Suffolk and the actual burial site in Loftus, where we actually got our hands dirty and took part in archaeological digs at the site. Local actress Lindsay Nicholson played the Princess.
Media Arts also created sound effects for the exhibition and supplied and fitted all of the Audio Visual equipment.
Once the exhibition opened we were called on again to programme an interactive kiosk that is now being used in outreach work to promote the exhibition to local communities.
It was a fantastic project to work on and we want to congratulate everyone who was involved!!
