Britain's Viking Graveyard

Britain’s Viking Graveyard

OUR FRIENDS AT WINDFALL FILMS BROUGHT US IN TO CONTRIBUTE GRAPHICS FOR THE EPIC
CHANNEL 4 / NOVA PROGRAM BRITAIN’S VIKING GRAVEYARD / LOST VIKING ARMY.

UNRAVELLING THE MYSTERY OF A RECENTLY DISCOVERED, 9TH CENTURY MASS GRAVE, THE PROGRAM
FOLLOWS SCIENTISTS AS THEY ATTEMPT TO PROVE THAT IT’S THE THE FINAL RESTING PLACE OF
THE GREAT VIKING ARMY THAT TRIED TO TAKE OVER ENGLAND A THOUSAND YEARS AGO.

OUR ROLE WAS TO BRING TO LIFE THE BONES AND THE STORIES BEHIND THEM. IN ALL, WE CRAFTED OVER
50 GRAPHIC SEQUENCES, WORKING WITH 3D SCANS AND 2D PHOTOGRAPHS OF VIKING RE-ENACTORS.
