To mark the centenary of Passchendaele, Third Battle of Ypres, the DCMS held a series of commemorative events. One of these special events took place in Ypres Market square. Presented in front of the formidable Cloth Hall, a building standing at 125 metres wide and 70 metres tall. Watched by approximately 8,000 guests and broadcast live by the BBC to an audience which peaked at 1.5 million.

Working with Kate Dawkins Studio, I was a team lead involved in the design, animation, and delivery of all the projection content with a particular focus on the sections involving veteran testimonials. These sections involved crafting narrative collages which combined audio, video, graphic textures and archive photography.

Kate Dawkins Studio joined forces with AV leaders, Creative Technology to deliver this epic, breathtaking and incredibly emotional story that played out on this giant, multi-sided building.
