Dreamworld’s Sky Voyager

November 27 2019

This year Dreamworld launched a new $17m theatre ride. The ride is an immersive live-action 4K adventure, which uses motion-programmed seating and special sensory effects to give riders the experience of flying over famous locations. We have had the pleasure of delivering full production and post for multiple i-Ride films, including Dreamworld’s ‘Sky Voyager’.  The i-Ride theatre is an immersive experience that gives riders the sensation of flying through some of the world’s most incredible scenery. i-Ride theatres feature dome shaped projections designed to fill the riders field of view, enclosing them in the experience. Riders are suspended in seats that follow the vision to give the sense of soaring through the sky. Sky Voyager allows riders to experience the sensation of wingsuiting through Tasmanian mountain passes, parasailing over the Whitsundays, hot air ballooning over the Barossa Valley, soaring over the Twelve Apostles, and helicopter mustering cattle outback Australia.

June 28 2019

A ten-part sci-fi film set to the Alice in Chains’ Grammy Award winning album Rainier Fog, sounds pretty great to us. Titled ‘Black Antenna’ and directed by US film director Adam Mason, the film follows two aliens as they struggle to survive, elude capture and communicate with their mothership. It’s dark, sometimes bizarre, and for a film about aliens it’s a surprisingly human story – exploring very relevant concepts about immigration, homelessness and xenophobia. Cutting Edge joined the project from episode six, collaborating on design and VFX sequences. We caught up with Adam to talk about the film ahead of the release of the finale.
