THE STORY SPACE
Haynes International Motor Museum, charitable trust and world class collection of motor vehicles, is home to over 400 cars and motorbikes from the late 1800s through nostalgic classics of the 1950s and 1960s to supercars like the iconic Jaguar XJ220 and holds one of largest UK collections from around the world
THE STORY NARRATIVE
The museum wanted to create a new exhibition within its existing ‘The American Dream’ theme by animating four American cars in a new and exciting way in order to share the rich, vibrant history of these iconic vehicles and contextualise the significance of the era.
THE STORY ENGINEERING
Four audio-visual backdrops were installed, each containing an Optoma ZU510T laser projector to show moving footage on a continuous loop. These graphic backdrops and projections with archive footage and period advertising, conjure the thrill of driving these classic cars and create an engaging nostalgic display.
Museum Curator, Matt Piper, said: ”The new imagery really brings these displays to life and has quite dramatically changed the feel of ‘The American Dream’ exhibition space. The videos and archive footage help visitors learn more about the featured vehicles and offer the sights and sounds of bygone eras. It is particularly pleasing to know that our visitors are able to see elements of our collection in motion and so beautifully and dynamically filmed, too.”
