Brave New World

Brave New World is new television series produced by NBC Universal Studios, based on the classic 1932 novel by Aldous Huxly. GaiaNova were approached by creative team Marshmallow Laser Feast (MLF) to help realise a key scene in the opening episode, described by Vanity Fair magazine as ‘the Most Immaculately Art-Directed Orgy Sequence on TV.’

GaiaNova worked closely with content creators MLF, the production art department, set designers and director of photography, from the early pre-visualisation phase to the three days of filming on location in Battersea Park, London.

Tasked with creating a futuristic nightclub, we covered the whole environment in moving video imagery. We used six of our Avolites Ai servers to play back content with a total 12k x 6k pixel resolution, which was then seamlessly blended across 26 projectors supplied by QED Productions and an LED floor supplied by Anna Valley. Across the project we provided the following services:

• Projection design and film set integration
• Media server project design and build
• Content pre-visualisation
• Video content media management
• Video projector and media server supply and systems integration
• Show build and live operation on set
