Chester: A Life Story

In this new digital world, there’s a certain sense of satisfaction in working with tactile materials which you can actually feel – Emma crafted some beautifully, delicate paper models providing our animations with an atmospheric backdrop, featured in a fantastic new exhibition ‘Chester: A Life Story’ by Big Heritage.

The heritage exhibition, which opened in April, is a hands on, interactive experience that offers something different to a traditional museum. The procurement process called for some exciting ideas, our solution was an animated hologram projected above a paper crafted village.

Knockaloe WWI Internment Camp

It’s amazing to think that the story of the 1st World War internment camp at Knockaloe on the Isle of Man, is one that was almost lost. Thanks to the passion and hard work of local couple Alison and Richard Jones, the story is now being brought to life in a brand new visitor centre.

“From the start our challenge was how to get across to our visitors what it felt like to be interned as an “enemy alien” at Knockaloe during WW1.

What Fuzzy Duck have created are three very different audio visual experiences to explain aspects of the story in a way which is interesting to absorb, but is also totally sympathetic to this sensitive and difficult aspect of WW1 history.” – Alison James

Mika Quakkinenn

In other news… the Easter Bank Holiday weekend saw the annual Quays Duck Race for local charity MedEquip4Kids. Sadly, our racer “Mika Quakkinen” failed to live up to his namesake, but it was a fantastic day in the sunshine, raising over £10,000 for a fantastic cause.
