TITANIC EXPERIENCE

 

In the very place where Titanic was designed, built and launched, Titanic Belfast tells the story of Titanic from her conception, through her construction and launch, to her maiden voyage and subsequent place in history.

 

Alongside the Studio MB exhibition design vision, AY-PE created and installed multimedia across two galleries: Launch and Voyage. Informative, immersive and evocative audio-visual media exhibits transport visitors through the earlier days - from the build and launch to life at sea, before the iceberg was struck.

Client: Titanic Belfast

THE LAUNCH

Compositing David Rooney’s bespoke illustrations into 3D environments, our virtual camera flies through a 3 minute animated sequence, evoking the feel of 1911 through elegant, smokey, monochrome line drawings. Creating the illusion of a living environment, we take the visitor from the crowds of Titanic’s launch, to the manual engineering feats of the workers around it and its launch down the slipway, with an inspiring soundscape in accompaniment.

 

The films were shaped and designed to map around windows and set work within the gallery, so visitors can see the waters outside the building, where Titanic was actually launched, whilst immersing in this abstract, animated dramatisation.

OCEAN IMMERSION

Transporting audiences onto Titanic’s deck promenade - guests walk on deck, look out to sea, hear the ocean and feel the ships engines rumbling. A bespoke CGI seascape from 3D modelling through to matte-painting, texturing and lighting, produce a unique, colossal, 180º projected immersive ocean view, complete with balanced sound effects and sub rumbles for the engines. 

LIFE WITHIN THE SHIP

Scripted, produced, filmed and edited, we made a Pepper’s Ghost ‘hologram’ of Fredrick Dent Ray, a dining room steward and survivor. Fredrick hauntingly engages visitors whilst appearing in restaurant setwork, telling audiences what it was like to work on board at the Palm Court Café. 

Clear, bold animations on complex topics such as emigration and the class-system were storyboarded and created to appeal to a wide audience, with a focus on school children engagement.

TRIPADVISOR

It’s not a museum, it's an experience... a fantastic insight to every chapter of the ships story.
