Epping Forest were updating their visitor centre and their design company, Codsteaks, invited us to join the team as scriptwriters for the centre’s exhibition and AV text.
The City of London were keen to achieve a humorous, ‘Horrible Histories’ tone of voice, and we worked together to pin point the right voice for them – lighthearted and friendly, but expert.
It was important the the complex story of this important mosaic of habitats was told accurately and engagingly. We also had to help visitors to understand that a forest is not a habitat, it’s an historic term referring to the boundaries of old Royal hunting grounds. We created a storyline with plot, characters and dramatic tension, and brought together natural history and human stories to explain this important habitat to family visitors
