BAFTA winning actor Peter Capaldi is to star in a unique 3D dramatised documentary about Leonardo Da Vinci.
Inside the Mind of Leonardo is based on the artist’s private journals dating from the Italian Renaissance.
With over 6,000 pages of handwritten notes and drawings, Leonardo Da Vinci’s private journals are the most comprehensive documents that chronicle the work of the world’s most renowned inventor, philosopher, painter and genius. Inside the Mind of Leonardo uses this precious collection of writings and drawings to recount DaVinci’s story in his own words, and combines them with stunning visual effects and 3D technology to re-create the mindscape and ideas of mankind’s greatest polymath.
“Leonardo’s journals are an extraordinary body of work, highlighting Da Vinci’s position at the vanguard of ideas, thought and design. It’s wholly fitting therefore, that his works are being brought to life in such a creative way with the use of Sky’s cutting edge 3D technology,” comments James Hunt, Channel Director of Sky Arts.
Inside the Mind of Leonardo will premiere on Sunday 24th of March at 9pm on Sky Arts HD, Sky 3D and Sky Go.
