Metaverse company Hadean is teaming up with film & TV studio, Film Soho, to produce an interactive virtual documentary about the life of iconic British supermodel, Twiggy. Supported by Epic Games, disguise and AWS, the new partnership employs metaverse technology to deliver a photo-realistic interactive experience to a global live audience of fans, while challenging the boundaries of modern filmmaking.
Film Soho x Hadean Studio - Virtual Experience
Directed by award-winning actress and filmmaker Sadie Frost, the documentary's final scene is being produced live at the Cannes Marché du Film Festival on May 17th, in just 48 hours, using Film Soho's on-site virtual production stage. The scene will see Twiggy immersed into a photo-realistic virtual recreation of London's Carnaby Street in the 1960s, built by disguise using Epic Games' Unreal Engine.
Alongside this, a live virtual experience powered and designed by Hadean makes use of the same Unreal Engine environment as the documentary, engaging users with interactive elements based on Twiggy's memories of the time.
"We are thrilled to be partnering with Film Soho, disguise, AWS and Epic on this exciting project," said Craig Beddis, CEO of Hadean. "Virtual production is the future of filmmaking, and we are proud to be at the forefront of this new way of enabling audience participation in a traditionally one-way industry."
