With its makeover in 2020, the Ferenc Móra Museum introduced several new features, including a permanent exhibition opened in the Lapidarium. The interactive installations of the show give an insight into the most iconic moments of the city’s history: the adventures of Sándor Rózsa and his fellow outlaws; the ordeals of local witches; and the Great Flood of Szeged.
Our animated short included in the new exhibition recounts the history of Szeged and the fate of its fort from the Roman times through the ravages of the infamous flood. We also developed a related interactive game helping visitors get to know more about witchcraft and participate in a virtual trial where anyone can determine whether they are guilty or innocent in sorcery. The mock ordeal is accompanied by 2D and 3D elements as well as light effects. The exhibited film also adverts to the epic event of the Great Flood, the devastation, and the subsequent reconstruction of the city. We recreated the dramatic and uplifting moods of the striking events by putting movements and color onto old photographs of the era. The implementation took place in close cooperation with the museum staff.
