Challenge

It started with a visit to Szczecin. Our friends from DW Group Event Agency popped in to see exciting geodesic dome in action in Freedomes HQ and saw our previous fulldome VR 3D productions. We knew the bar is set high but this was the book scenario for VR dome content – a big corporate event to launch DHL presence and emphasize their values.

Solution

We had two months to create something special. Our storyboarding team worked out a cool scenario with DW GROUP where the whole dome audience goes on a trip to space and flies with DHL shuttle from far away to Earth. When the storyboard was approved production commenced and we’ve started creating 3D scenes and animations in Unreal Engine. Movies and still shots changed hands and we were making changes to scenario and scenes to the very last moment. Thanks to our real-time production workflow this was possible without lengthy rendering delays.

Results

On a sunny day in early October, the dome was opened for over 400 invited guests including top DHL management from the US. Our 8-minute-long animation was screened in 360° format on 900m2 surface inside the dome. Event moderator joked that it was the first time he saw so many guests recording a corporate event on their smartphones. After the event we’ve received kind letter from our friends at DW GROUP saying (cit.): “Everyone, from the top managers from US to the security team was awed by your production”. We simply knew this is a chance we cannot miss.

“Pixel Legend made our launch event special. Our audience, including top executives from Poland and Headquarters were captivated by their production. Pure event magic.”
