Countdown

An immersive film for Eden Project's summer exhibition

Eden Project

Countdown was produced for the Eden Project to highlight the rapid and unnatural decline in global biodiversity, showing species under threat. The film featured rare footage of animals that are now extinct, with footage captured by Limbic Cinema and many other wildlife film makers.

We projection-mapped onto six walls in a hexagonal space, developing a bespoke system that integrated multiple projectors and surround sound audio. The film was carefully designed to move around the space in a way that invited subtle participation from the audience.


Countdown Immersive

The contrast in crisp imagery juxtaposed with stark facts about the breakdown of our natural world, provoked an emotional response from the audience.

Limbic are a creative and professional company who fully understood our messaging and visitor experience requirements, responding promptly and sensitively to our brief and subsequent requests. We hope to work with them again in the very near future.
