The second exhibit, the 5th Gen Edge Experience, delivered dramatic storytelling through a 360 projection within an 8m dome to demonstrate the power of RAAF’s transformation into a fifth-generation Air Force. Spinifex and WGCDR Chris McInnes created a three-chapter script where the same incident is seen from three different viewpoints, demonstrating how the incident would take place in current-state in comparison with how it would be addressed in a fifth-generation Air Force. Perspective and angles needed to be made to work for viewing from below. Understanding how to draw focus to the important story points while keeping the rest of the dome activated was critical to success and Spinifex used a combination of green screen filming, CG environments, 3D models and motion graphics overlay to create a dynamic, filmic view of each scene.
Visiting delegations and guests included 15 service chiefs, 9 National Armament Directors and 24 Chief of Air Force representatives, from 30 countries.
