SCOPE OF WORK - SELECTED EXAMPLES
Australian War Memorial /World War 1 Gallery
As well as being technologically innovative, the exhibit needed to provide a contemplative, educational and historically accurate account of war and provide a touchstone for the visitor experience. Luscious was Executive Multimedia Producer for the full refit over a twelve-month period, encompassing over 18 separate films, 100 digital touch screens, 3 major interactive exhibits and the entire soundscape design.
Overlapping maps are positioned over geographical data allowing visitors to interact with the area and discover its history. This was a significant bespoke project and a show-stopping experience within the installation.
Sound was a crucial element in creating a seamless overall experience. We created a soundscape for each area, including battle scenes, recorded conversations, wartime music and atmosphere. The end result was a historically authentic, contemplative and immersive experience.
‘Turning the Tables’ is a short film following the achievements of the Australian Infantry and Sir John Monash in holding the German front line in Somme, August 1918. The Battle of Hamel and Villers-Bretonneux were created as digital dioramas. The gallery design and exhibition experience have been met with positive press and are considered a benchmark for interactive and multimedia development.

Australian National Maritime Museum - ACTION STATIONS
Luscious designed and produced an interactive installation and series of films to showcase the history of the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) within the ‘Action Stations’ exhibition.
The exhibit features an interactive table with large touchscreens to highlight and illustrate how the RAN responds to Australia’s needs in a changing world, as well as ‘choose your own’ style digital experiences putting users of all ages in control of their own narrative. Within the interactive components, 17 films were produced featuring interviews with various Captains and Crew, past and present, to bring real experiences to life through video.
The Discovery and Exploration space has exceeded expectations and the ANMM has since commissioned Luscious to produce 2 immersive documentaries and a 360 VR experience for the popular exhibit.

ANMM - JAMES CAMERON ‘CHALLENGING THE DEEP
The Australian National Maritime Museum in conjunction with the Avatar Alliance Foundation commissioned the James Cameron ‘Challenging the Deep’ Project. The process began with Luscious collaborating with the ANMM and the Avatar Alliance to design the overall visitor experience.
Once the exhibition was designed, Luscious wrote, produced and installed the exhibition on brief, delivering a cohesive, expansive and immersive cinematic experience based on James Cameron’s numerous deep-sea expeditions.
The scope of work includes five documentary films, each based on one period and event from Cameron’s history as an innovative film maker and explorer. Luscious took responsibility for design, creation and installation of the three highly detailed touch-screen interactive experiences, a computer-controlled location specific soundscape and a computer controlled interactive lighting system.
Luscious is now engaged in preparations to take the exhibition on a world tour which begins in New Zealand and then moves on to Europe and North America.
