Reanimating Magna Carta


We're very proud to announce our latest project - two films for the British Library about the origins and legacy of the Magna Carta. We've been working closely with the Library to design and animate two beautiful films in celebration of the 800th anniversary of the medieval document, and the coming-together of two original parchments in London at a major exhibition, 'Magna Carta: Law, Liberty, Legacy'. Voiced by Monty Python's Terry Jones, the films mix 2D and 3D techniques and a painterly palette. We'd urge you to watch the films and then get along to the British Library to view the actual Magna Carta and learn more about it's fascinating history.
