Working with Global, the Media and Entertainment group, home to the UK’s best-loved commercial radio brands and over 253,000 Outdoor media sites nationwide, we created a world’s first in WebAR. The campaign involves a billboard activated volumetric (3D) experience with singer-songwriter Anne-Marie and another experience where viewers can see the performance in their own home.
The two experiences were designed and produced by Visualise to promote the first in a series of intimate gigs to be hosted over the summer by Global’s hit music station, Capital in partnership with Barclaycard.
The first Outdoor experience is activated by scanning a QR code on one of approximately 1,000 Global billboards across the UK – to launch the WebAR experience. Once activated, the user is prompted to scan the billboard to start the experience. Anne-Marie then bursts through the poster with a shatter of glass. As she does so, the poster frame magically transforms into a stage where she delivers the news about her upcoming gig. The user is then prompted to enter a competition to win tickets to the show.
The second ‘At Home’ experience is activated by scanning a floor or table and placing a circle on the flat surface. Once activated, a void appears in the user’s environment and Anne-Marie pops up out onto a stage where she delivers her performance. At the end of the experience, the user is prompted to pop a series of 3balloons which appear in their environment to advance to the competition page.
Both experiences were created in-house by our team of developers and immersive content specialists. Anne-Maire’s volumetric performance was captured and processed by leading ‘digital human’ experts, Dimension Studio. The 3D, animation and other video effects were created by our VFX partners Silk Factory.
