TURNING YESTERDAY’S EDUCATIONAL TOOLS INTO LIVING, PULSATING EXPERIENCES

Transforming a passive historical tool into a captivating interactive experience, such was the challenge presented to TKNL. This large scale model, presenting Montréal circa 1740, was thus split into six sections, allowing visitors to delve into various details of the city’s life in its early days. 

The revelries of the Montréalistes, Saint-Paul street, the Bonsecours chapel, the Montréal Citadel, 18th century hygiene—in all, 12 themes were meticulously researched, scripted, and produced with the dual aim of informing and entertaining.

 

Archival documents were brought to life through various techniques: colour, light, texturing, cropping, depth, layering, and movement. As visitors activate video capsules, the model comes alive, simulating daytime or nighttime, a season, a fire, a flock of birds or the passage of clouds… long-gone buildings even reappear! In short, the award-winning effects allow visitors to “touch” history.
