MARY ROSE OPENS TO GREAT ACCLAIM
Since opening in July, Portsmouth's Rose warship has drawn record numbers of visitors keen to see the remains of this magnificent 16th century warship rendered fully visible for the first time since it was raised from the seabed in 1982. The story of its crew, its construction and dramatic resurrection and restoration are told in a cutting-edge A/V. Now displayed in the world's largest showcase; part glazed part open on three levels, the boat is brought to life with two sophisticated A/V narratives, one of which projects crew members going about their duties (in peacetime and at war) in the relevant parts of the boat, while the other tells the story of boat's construction, sinking and resurrection. For these, Real Studios collaborated with lighting designer Adam Grater of DHA design, AV designer Graham English and sound designer Peter Key.
