Synopsis

An interactive experience created to support the release of Sky Atlantic’s 2nd series of Britannia. The show is an anarchic drama that follows the Roman army as they return to crush the Celtic heart of Britannia, a mysterious land led by warrior women and powerful Druids who claim to channel the powerful forces of the underworld. Our experience invites you to explore and interact with the genre-bending, psychedelic world of the show. You’ll become part of a lost Celtic tribe held up on a beach two years after the Roman invasion. In episode one you are immersed in a world of Druid magic and mysticism. In a future, second episode you’ll enter an intoxicating world of Roman imperialism and power.

Director’s Statement

For Britannia we were granted unprecedented on-set access during TV production. A revelation: from the love of prop making and the breath-taking sets, to the exceptional performances. By blending cinematic and game production techniques—photogrammetry of sets and props, mo- cap and vol-cap—we immerse participants deep in the world of Britannia.
