Drop onto the ocean floor in our latest commission Prehistoric VR, an immersive encounter by internationally renowned makers of large-scale puppetry experiences Erth Visual & Physical Inc, and award winning visual artist and filmmaker Samantha Lang.

Based on Erth's stage show Prehistoric Aquarium, Prehistoric VR invites kids big and small to travel back 200 million years to encounter some of the strange, wonderful and terrifying creatures of the prehistoric deep. Up close and personal with an amazing array of aquatic creatures from the Ediacaran to the Cretaceous periods, this groundbreaking VR experience connects audiences to the real science of paleontology.

Commissioned by ACMI, and developed by Erth Visual & Physical Inc. with assistance from Create NSW in partnership with AFTRS (the Australia Film Television & Radio School), Handmaid Media and Start VR.

An ACMI commission

Erth Visual & Physical were commissioned by ACMI to create this stunning virtual reality experience based on their large-scale puppet show, Prehistoric Aquarium. This is their first foray into creating VR.
