ANMM - OPERATION JAYWICK – DARK VICTORY

Luscious recently produced a second film to feature in Action Stations at the Australian National Maritime Museum. Entitled ‘Operation Jaywick – Dark Victory’ the film was a joint production between the Singapore National Museum and the Australian National Museum showcasing the birth of Special Forces in Australia.

Due to the covert nature of the original operation there was a very limited amount of historical material to tell the story. The 16 metre by 3 metre ultra-widescreen format of the delivery dictated the images were built in 6K requiring a technically complex production and delivering workflow to enable us to meet the delivery date working to a compressed timeline.

Luscious undertook a significant amount of historical research before writing the scripts, storyboarding the film, researching and creating the 2D and 3D imagery (including a true-to-life 3D CGI Krait and the foldable canoes) then producing and delivering the critically well received film.

Luscious commissioned, briefed and produced the soundtrack including sourcing historical sound bites and historically accurate sound-bite recreations which were brought together to create a collage style narration for the film.

 Informational Graphics were designed and projected into 3D space with 2D subtitles then added in several languages to accommodate the international nature of the audience.

A guided immersive Virtual tour of ‘The Krait” is now under production with the look and design matched to the original ‘Operation Jaywick – Dark Victory’ film. Upon completion the experience will be installed at both the Singapore National Museum and the Australian National Maritime Museum.

JAMES CAMERON - CHALLENGING THE DEEP

Luscious was commissioned by the Australian National Maritime Museum to create an immersive, narrative-rich museum experience using emergent technologies to document James Cameron’s work as an explorer and storyteller. 

The exhibition features five films playing on four large screens set so as to be enjoyed as a linear or non-linear journey within the exhibition space. The soundtrack and the computer controlled programming of the films is designed to deliver narrative specific relative to the location of the visitors throughout the gallery.

As well as film scripting, production and editing, soundtrack conception, interactive display design and the computer controlled lighting plan, Luscious created the television, online and print advertising campaign to promote the exhibit.

James Cameron; Challenging the Deep, opened its doors on the 28th of May to critical and public acclaim with global interest building in what is truly transformative experience.

IPP - SHREWSBURY MIXED REALITY PET STORE

IPP America commissioned Luscious to create a life-like 6 degrees of freedom experience within a fully stocked and visually operational pet shop.

A combination of filmed live-action, digital matte paintings and 3D CGI were combined to deliver the mixed reality immersive experience. 

The structure of the store was built from 2 dimensional CAD file plans of a real store then texture mapped using colours, signage and art work created by the advertising agency.

Real staff were filmed in an operational store and the footage was then looped to create a continuous visual narrative. 

The sound recorded on location was processed in Unreal Engine to create 3 dimensional location specific spatial sound.

A high level of realistic detail was created using 3D CGI stock texture mapped with actual products from the store.

It would be feasible to create an operational virtual store where customers could inspect and buy products online for later delivery.

VIRTUAL EQUALITY – VIRTUAL REALITY ADVERTISING CAMPAIGN

Luscious produced the Cannes Silver Lion award winning virtual reality wedding campaign for J. Walter Thompson Worldwide.  

We filmed a wedding in Auckland New Zealand in 360 VR then created a multi-view VR experience, which was later enjoyed by guests at a virtual wedding in Sydney where same sex marriage was not yet legal. 

The Virtual wedding experience in Sydney was filmed then edited to create an online advertising campaign with the powerful message: "Australia, It’s time to make marriage equality a reality.” Then becoming a rallying cry of the “yes” campaign.

This highly successful approach of producing a VR or AR component which then serves as the base component for a commercial which can be filmed and screened in a traditional manner proved to be a highly successful and repeatable approach to creating an advertising campaign.
