The Missed Spaceflight brings people through space and back in time, to let them live the dream of becoming the nation’s first astronaut in the times when Poland was buried deep in the dullness of communism. We wanted to make the best kind of branded experience - for all of us who once were kids dreaming about becoming astronauts.
We wanted people to feel the claustrophobia and the intensity of the 70's spaceflight, but also have a relaxing moment of weightlessness and spectacular view at sunset from the orbit.
The minutes-long master shots are rare in film, but achieving presence in VR often relies on this technique (rarely with good results). We wrote the script to take advantage of it, but it was still a great challenge to produce. Everything, everywhere - every object in the scene had to be continuously present and animated the whole time.
Believe it or not, but this highly ambitious project was our first real attempt at creating highly detailed and realistic, full CGI VR story.
