Super 78 utilizes Mushroom VR on location during production of Flying over Indonesia


How do you capture extraordinary footage, in the most challenging environment, with complete confidence that it will be perfect when projected onto a curved screen four stories high?

That was the challenge for the Super 78 production team shooting Flying Over Indonesia (FOI), a flying theater attraction in development for a major park operator in Asia.  FOI will use a Dynamic Attractions ride vehicle and is scheduled to launch in 2019. Throughout the production process, the Super 78 team and the client made use of Mushroom VR, the collaborative review and approval platform that allows anyone, anywhere, to pre-visualise attractions before they are built.

“Our crew was shooting in some of the most remote and spectacular locations on earth, “ stated Brent Young, President and Creative Director of Super 78.  “Whether we were in the highlands of Mt. Bromo or were at Prambanan Temple with 300 costumed extras and eight elephants, we had to know whether we got the shot. Using Mushroom VR, we could pull the card out of the camera, put the headset on and watch the footage, virtually, in the theater where it will be projected.”

Mushroom’s capabilities benefit every segment of the themed entertainment industry: theme parks, museums, aquariums, hotels, retail, and much more.

Long before construction begins, Mushroom lets creatives experience a space as a guest would, at a precise one-to-one scale. This way, they can ensure that every detail supports the story they want to tell.

Mushroom is designed to be very easy to use, with clear graphical interfaces and intuitive controls.

This immersive, enterprise, virtual reality system is a complete reimagination of the creative process.
