First Life VR Wins Innovation Award

May 19, 2016

The First Life virtual reality experience has won a Museum & Heritage Award for Innovation, given jointly to Alchemy VR, one of the companies within the Atlantic Productions group, and the Natural History Museum in London. Narrated by David Attenborough, this immersive experience takes audiences into the depths of the Cambrian oceans to the very dawn of life where they encounter the first animals ever to live on this planet, brought to life in visually-stunning and scientifically accurate CGI.  The judges commented that it was an outstanding piece of work which set the benchmark for the future in museums. First Life was previously available in London’s Natural History Museum from July to December 2015, and is now showing at the Australian Museum in Sydney.
