Arteus and Tern TV Investigate The Forgotten Scottish Prince

30 November 2017

Arteus provides post production on the 'Best King We Never Had' for BBC Two (Scotland).

Arteus - Best King We Never Had

Presenter Paul Murton takes us on a journey through history to discover why we are not familiar with Henry Fredrick Stuart – the forgotten Scottish prince and perhaps the Best King We Never Had.

This documentary investigates the history of this royal prince (who started the British Museum and Royal Collection).

Arteus Editor Bill Gill collaborated once more with Producer/Director George Cathro on this Tern TV documentary. As well as providing edit, grade, sound dub and VO the Arteus team rose to the challenge when our graphics guru Nick designed and printed a set of medieval playing cards that feature in the programme.

From a reference image of a medieval painting, he painstakingly created various paintings and figures in that style - from scratch, before animating sequences with the cards, as well as getting a deck created for use as a physical prop for filming.
