The Amsterdam Museum commissioned PlusOne, a creative agency in Amsterdam, to bring its maps and works of art to life with 3-D digital animation techniques for their DNA exhibit about the history of the city. This short segment is an excerpt from Revolt Against King and Church, one of seven films that the agency produced for the 45-minute multimedia experience.
