Creative Centenaries Mark First World War Anniversary with New Animation

Creative Centenaries Mark First World War Anniversary with New Animation

Nerve Centre's Creative Centenaries project has produced a new animation in conjunction with Whitenoise Studios to mark one hundred years since the start of the First World War.

The unique, 3D-style video charts some of the key events leading to the outbreak of the conflict and the huge part played by the men and women of Ireland throughout its four-year duration.

Utilising visual content from both PRONI and Linen Hall Library, the animation brings a fresh approach to historical storytelling and brings to life stunning and iconic imagery from the time.

A unique format of 3D mapping conveys the social and political fallout like never before, allowing people, places and events including the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and how and why men enlisted to fight to be immersive experiences.

The film is just on a number of projects being delivered by the Creative Centenaries project which aims to bring a fresh approach to the study and memory of one of Ireland's most defining periods.

The Creative Centenaries project, led by the Nerve Centre and supported by the Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure (DCAL), brings together information and resources about the Decade of Centenaries and the work of Northern Ireland's creative sector in commemorating these events.
