English Heritage is undertaking a major project to improve the setting of Stonehenge and to provide new facilities for visitors. A major part of this project is the build of a new, sensitively designed and environmentally sustainable visitor centre. The visitor centre is due to open in Autumn 2013. This visitor centre will include a permanent exhibition exploring Stonehenge, the wider landscape and the theories attached to the site. The introductory element to this exhibition is an immersive 360 degree projected film. Using CGI and other High Dynamic Range images the successful contractor will create a groundbreaking visual experience that will allow people to stand inside the stone circle and travel back in time to its heyday. This is the most important and high profile piece of AV ever undertaken by English Heritage and one of the most significant and exciting commissions ever made available in the UK. It is the chance to complement and precede one the world’s most important and recognizable historic sites with a landmark AV experience that will be viewed by over 1 million visitors a year.
