About the project

To mark the centenary anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War Remembering Folkestone was a seminal online stereographic 3D interactive documentary resource centred on Folkestone’s First World War heritage and culture.

Responsible for the post-production process and delivery of the project the role consisted of converting archived 2D still images into animated stereographic footage, editing newly filmed stereographic 3D footage and producing stereographic graphics, captions and animated maps. The front end web development was hand coded whilst utilising YouTube’s Stereo3D and video linking technology.
