This is Antarctica as you’ve never seen it before — it’s the next best thing to visiting the frozen continent.
Transport yourself to a world of ice and snow through the wonder of virtual reality, and explore a day in the life of Australian Antarctic scientists as they research Antarctica from Davis Research Station.
With narration by David Wenham (Lord of the Rings, Elvis, Moulin Rouge), 360-degree camera control and stunning 4K high-resolution vision, you’ll see first-hand the work that goes into understanding climate change, managing ecosystems, researching sustainability, and conserving wildlife.
Along the way you’ll:
Explore Antarctica from a helicopter cockpit, even landing on glaciers.
Discover the resident penguin colony and see the new chicks.
Explore Davis Station and logistics that go into surviving the harsh Antarctic conditions
View the spectacular Southern Lights in high definition.
This award-winning virtual reality adventure is returning to Boola Bardip for a limited season and should not be missed!
Presented by White Spark Pictures in collaboration with WA Museum.
About White Spark Pictures
White Spark Pictures is an independent production company based in Perth, Australia. It was founded in 2017 by producer, director, and writer Briege Whitehead and from the outset has had two distinct divisions: one producing factual content for the international television market and one harnessing the latest technology and filming techniques to produce VR (virtual reality), immersive and interactive films for venues and VR-enabled platforms. White Spark has quickly developed an enviable reputation and has established strong relationships with broadcasters, financiers, distributors and government organisations, both domestically and internationally.
To date, TV productions from Briege Whitehead and White Spark Pictures have appeared on leading broadcast platforms around the world such as National Geographic, the History Channel, Discovery and Netflix. Their first VR title, The Antarctica Experience, has been declared one of the most successful VR projects of all time after playing to sell-out audiences in major venues including Canberra’s National Museum of Australia and Sydney’s Australian Maritime Museum.
Currently, The Antarctica Experience is in the top 10 of highest grossing theatrically released Australian documentaries of all time. White Spark is now gearing up to launch this ground-breaking VR film to international audiences.
