Heuristic Shakespeare release the Tempest

At the end of April 2106, in celebration of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, Heuristic Media, the company that created London: a city through time released their pioneering Shakespeare app, The Tempest.

Featuring the narration of Sir Ian McKellen, the app aims to demystify Shakespeare, allowing users to experience the text as it is read, augmented with both background and historical context.

As part of this exciting release, ArtasMedia were proud to be able to contribute our reconstructions of the Sea Venture model (At 0:43 in the video below), of which the play is thought to be influenced by.

Backed by a stellar cast of actors including Dame Helen Mirren and Benedict Cumberbatch, it is hoped the release will lead to a full series of Shakespearean apps.
