AR & VR Selected Projects

Tennessee Aquarium

Tiny, But Mighty Important exhibit
3-D Hologram Animation

When the Tennessee Aquarium was looking to replace the Aquarium’s Barrens Topminnow lab exhibit, they looked to Magick Lantern/ListenUp Productions to help them create an impactful cutting edge experience. Using 3-D Hologram projections, the animation shows the impact that erosion into freshwater ecosystems has on the life cycles of the fish and insect populations.

“Whenever you introduce something ‘never before seen’ you get people’s attention,” he says. “Once they are captivated by the imagery in 3-D space, we can then show them something that is not only memorable and fascinating, but hopefully will teach them something as well.

“The concepts we are conveying about the environment and the impact of poor land use on that world are not easily seen on film or read about in a book. The visual hologram does a much better job of showing and teaching concepts like this one.”
