Born out of collaboration between Atlantic Productions and Zoo VFX (Atlantic’s CGI studio), Alchemy’s vision is to create the most compelling VR storytelling experiences in the world. They’re producing pioneering virtual reality experiences, including the award-winning museum experiences First Life and Great Barrier Reef Dive. Come and check out some of their latest VR experiences.

Deep VR is Africa's most experienced cinematic virtual reality production company. Its wildlife documentary division, Deep VR Wild, tells stories using VR to teleport nature lovers to real environments and situations. They’ll debut Exodus: The Great Migration: a virtual reality documentary about the East African mammal migration in a way never told nor filmed before. Be physically part of a herd making up part of the two million wildebeest that embark on a long and treacherous journey.

REWIND has collaborated with the BBC Science, BBC Learning and BBC Digital Storytelling to create an epic 15 minute immersive virtual reality experience: Home – AVR Spacewalk. Its immersive nature means that users will really get to feel what it’s like to be an astronaut floating 250 miles above earth with stunning and vast views of the spaceship, the space station and the universe.
