Custom Consoles EditOne desks have been chosen for the mission control room set in Mirage3D’s virtual reality 360 degrees and fulldome film Mars 1001.
“We researched the available desks online and at IBC,” comments Mirage3D founder and CEO Robin Sip who has produced the new film for digital planetariums around the world. “EditOne has exactly the modern high-tech look we were seeking plus the practical advantage that it ships as an easily assembled flatpack. We purchased four desks and expanded this to 30 using our green-screen skills. We changed the actors and extras and props for every recording.”
“We have supplied desks to a very large number of production studios, post houses, broadcasters and playout service providers over the years but this is the first time they have intentionally appeared on camera,” adds Custom Consoles Sales Manager Gary Fuller. “The effects achieved by Mirage3D are extremely impressive and demonstrate how far traditional television can be developed as virtual reality becomes increasingly popular.”
Scheduled for release in June 2018, Mars 1001 centres on space reporter Miles O’Brien guiding viewers through a 1,000 day mission to fly a crew to Mars and return them safely to Earth. The production will be available in fulldome, flat screen and VR formats.
