Museum Anniversary with New Technologies

The Museum of Peasant Uprisings in Gornja Stubica (Croatia) celebrated its 40th birthday with 3D mapping event called GUBEC TEATAR. It is the first multimedia mapping in Croatia that used the combined technique of animation, films and audio-visual effects on a cultural heritage monument. It made a 40-meter-long Monument of the Great Peasant Revolt alive and in an unprecedented way the real historic event has been entwined with rich rhetoric of the work of art since the author, a famous Croatian sculptor Antun Augustinčić, created his work on the literary masterpiece Ballads of Petrica Kerempuh written by Miroslav Krleža.

Besides the Ballads the museum used original texts from the 16th and 17th centuries and the old Kajkavian language for interpretation while combining them with recent films, animated characters, fantastic setting and 16th and 21st century music. More than 1000 people saw the multimedia spectacle and the guest of honour was the President of the Republic, Ivo Josipović since the whole event was organised under the auspices of the President.

The story of the Great Revolt from the 16th century and its leader Matija Gubec, who is the most popular historic figure in the country and a national symbol of justice, has found its contemporary interpretation suitable for the 21st century. New technologies have proved to be great tools for creating new experiences. The richness of visual effects and artistic scenario created a deep impact on the audience. 3D video mapping was made by the firm PAGO COM in cooperation with the firm Novena, both from Zagreb. The producer was Goran Pavičić, screenplay written by Goranka Horjan, multimedia development done by Ervin Šilić and animation by Goce Vaskov. Music sequences were played by the Early Music Ensemble Minstrel and the rock band Noxin while the audio recording and digitization was made by DIGIMARK from Zagreb.
