Troy: myth and reality


British Museum
November 2019

Clay worked closely with the client team and exhibition designers to bring four key artefacts to life with playful animations and dramatic sound design, exploring the key characters and themes behind the ancient Troy myth.

Narrative imagery was carefully redrawn and styled, before being animated and sequenced with specially created environmental audio and oral recordings of extracts from ancient source texts.

Finally, clever use of projection was deployed to integrate the final sequences with the exhibition design, projecting 'in the round', integrating with the story wall and the specially designed object plinths.

"So atmospheric... You feel like you're being dragged into the ancient myth"
