Emirates Carousel 360º

UK based agency Pulse challenged yellowBird to capture the journey of a suitcase from London Heathrow airport to Dubai International Airports.

The Surround Video follows the point of view of the suitcase as it travels across the Globe. The journey highlights the complex scanning systems and intricate Baggage systems that are behind both airports. Furthermore, it provides an incredible insight into the mechanics of modern flight. The whole production is enhanced by extensive use of CGI elements.

The Surround Video of this interesting journey of a suitcase can be viewed at Emirates Aviation Experience where it is projected on eight large screens.

UK agency Imagination asked yellowBird to capture the Shell Energy Lab in Surround Video. The Shell Energy Lab is an event full of exciting attractions. It takes its visitors on an engaging journey into the future of energy, technology and mobility.

The challenge for yellowBird was to allow people at home to go on the same engaging journey, as they would have when visiting the event. Whilst two narrators give an educational guided tour, interactive hotspots disclose information about the exciting attractions that you come across.

IKEA – Make Small Spaces Big

July 26, 2013

yellowBird got invited by London based LIDA (M&C Saatchi group) to produce and develop a fully interactive Surround Video for IKEA. The concept is based on Making Small Spaces Big.

The challenge for us was to shoot a guided Surround Video tour in various small spaces. Interactive hotspots highlight IKEA products designed for these spaces and show more information on features and pricing once clicked. Localizations were integrated for England and Ireland.

Another great piece that shows the true potential of Surround Video.
