An exhibition based around the Aardman Animations film ‘The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists’. The exhibition is filled with wonderful models and set work from the Aardman film. We designed, built and installed a number of the hands on interactives including a pirate ship driving game and some zoetropes where visitors can create their own animations. The exhibits where designed and built to match the ramshackle Victorian construction style of the Pirate Captain’s ship but still be robust enough for a life of hard use. The exhibition was initially installed in Thinktank in Birmingham but will be touring around the world.
