A TRULY UNIQUE AND IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE THAT'S UNLIKE ANYTHING YOU'VE EVER SEEN BEFORE.
The Electric Theatre Company have gone to great lengths to ensure an authentic experience, starting with motion capture data that's integrated into a 3D character in real time. Using Metahumans and actual Glass Plates from the 1880's, the creative team have recreated the streets of London with incredible accuracy. This very latest VR technology gives you the chance to simulate stepping into a time machine and walking among the locals of yesteryear with uncanny accuracy.
The development and testing of 23CSi Jack the Ripper involves the use of cutting-edge technologies, such as Virtual Production and motion capture. This approach allows for an unparalleled level of authenticity, as the team aims to create an immersive 19th century experience on the streets of London, built on UNREAL Engine, the revolutionary software can track 3D characters and integrate them seamlessly into graphically reproduced authentic backgrounds. This process enables the creation of highly detailed and realistic street scenes that transport the audience back in time. It has the ability to track the 3D modeled characters against graphically reproduced authentic backgrounds, bringing each street scene to life with stunning realism.
To enhance the accuracy of the characters, the team uses REALLUSION's 'Headshot' digital character creator software to 'pin' high-resolution images from police and related photographic archives onto the 3D models. Overall, the use of these innovative technologies and software allows for the creation of a truly authentic and immersive experience, bringing the notorious story of Jack the Ripper to life in away that was never possible before.
