Newangle have created a collection of films for the British Museum’s first major exhibition focused on underwater archaeology.
The exhibition displays the recent finds of Franck Goddio, founder and president of the European Institute for Underwater Archaeology (IEASM).
We produced an opening large scale film projection, which gives visitors an exciting taster of the experience awaiting them. The narrated film introduces the underwater archaeology undertaken in Aboukir Bay and the rediscovery of Thonis-Heracleion and Canopus, including stunning footage taken by Goddio’s team retrieving some of the incredible objects on display in the exhibition.
In addition to this we also produced a series of films featuring incredible and fascinating footage of the underwater discoveries. Including the raising of the Stela of Thonis-Heracleion, the 5 meter colossal figures of the Ptolemaic King and Queen and the remains of the majestic Temple of Serapis.
