History Channel: Unforgotten Soldiers

by The Glue Society

Unforgotten Soldiers was a film and installation project for DDB NZ and Sky TV/History Channel. The tribute marked the centenary of ANZAC soldiers fighting in the Gallipoli campaign during the First World War. Inspired by tableau vivant displays, the live performances took place entirely in black and white and toured Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch. Cast, wardrobe, props and art department went through the painstaking process of recreating B&W moments in the trenches from 100 years ago. Pete Baker from The Glue Society directed the project and the TV spot launched on free-to-air and SKY channels. The project won the Spikes Asia Design Grand Prix amongst other awards.
