- THE NEW ZEALAND PAVILION
- Commissioned to celebrate perennially innovative New Zealanders. The Pavillion boasted 80 screens atop poles reminiscent of native bush. The browse environment rotated 80 New Zealand companies whereas the 8 minute show focussed on celebrated industry leaders.
The multiscreen programme sequenced eight seperate video sources with surround sound and lighting effects. A true multimedia / mixed media experience or "video on steroids" as one columnist put it.
The forest of monitors and extraordinary pavillion were designed by those clever dicks at NewImproved.
- Gen-i Sales Conference
- Having heard how marvellous it was to be fully immersed in audio visual splendour (thanks to the inflatable Rugby Ball) Gen-i approached Domain to produce both days of their sales conference inside an immersive environment.
We rested on the idea of an octagon handily allowing us to shoot scenes in Buenos Aires on the eight camera rig. Talk about being there.
The highlight of the last night was Hodgee VJing to a set from Supergroove who said it was like playing INSIDE a television and indeed it was.
- MITO ATech Launch
- Graciously, Richard Pitts allowed us to play in his immaculate workshop. Seriously, the mechanics workshop's walls are white tiles. He allowed us to wrap some brand new Audi's in lycra so we could create a mechanics multi media moment. We got some nervous looks from the mechanics when we told them their lycra suits were being made as well. We have always loved playing with toys, but, 5 projectors, a serious sound system, brand new Audi's, hydraulic hoists and a client who gave us great latitude was a brilliant combination.
The one disappointment was that the DL2's were still floating in the Tasman sea as opposed to wowing us with their debutante performance.
But Simon apologised profusely for that.
Working with NewImproved made sure the Audi's lycra suits fit like a glove.

Funky. Cool. Fabulous

- Gala Dinner ACI
- Entering the gala dinner the guests first moved through an installation by renowned sculptor Virginia King. Antartic Heart, a 22 piece installation, was lit by Bryan Caldwell. Inside the installation an icebar served a 42below cocktails. After drinks, the guests moved through to the formal dinner, where the table centrepieces were again sculptures.
After formalities, the room was transformed by pulling tabs to reveal 'Antartic Heart' as a three dimensional backdrop.
The 500 guests were entertained by the sultry songstress Kaitlyn Smith, with VJS performing until the wee hours.
- One of the first things AgResearch said is they wanted to win first prize, so, we made sure that they did.
We had fun with meat, sheep & microscopes. We crafted huge bugs and grew grass around plasma screens. We designed wonderful interactive games.
& to top it all off Nic wore pink gumboots.
Now three three premier sites later we are still having fun with science. The big hit this year was the zapper which shocked unfocussed punters.
- Paris, London, Tokyo, SYD, AKL
- Creating a Kiwi experience inside a 13m high inflatable rugby ball was no mean feat. Working in the round where you had to be as conscious of your back as your front and needing cameramen who were happy to squat for extended periods of time below the lens-line was all part of it.
However, Domain with the Darkroom and Dub Module pulled it off - to great acclaim. The French were mightily impressed (of course the kiwis had already left Paris).
Resurrecting the Ball in London gave us the opportunity to shoot new scenes that were full motion and fully immersive using a 6mm lens and a bespoke lens relay system onto the Red Camera. Tres exciting.
Even the Queen was impressed.
- Airport Council International
- Creating a bona fide kiwi experience for 700 of our closest international friends in the middle of downtown auckland was seriously good fun ...
- As VFX Producer, Romola worked with an extraordinary team to deliver the VFX msgic for Spartacus.
In season 3 alone we delivered 4300 VFX shots. Not just an inordinate number of VFX shots but delivered under the scheduling pressure of fast turnaround telly. We did such a good job that even the Hollywood lads didn't realise that the show was completely shot against green. Not a single scene was shot outside. Even the view out the window was created digitally. Not to mention the armies of thousands, battles in the snow and sailing on the high seas.
- Still Life Positive Exposure
- Two different projects working with world renowned photographers.
STILL LIFE Working with Jane Ussher to bring her evocative book on the explorer huts of the antartic to life - in uncompressed 6 meter 3 walled, surround sound glory - the detail was extraordinary. The purpose-built Still Life cube was a centerpiece at the Ice Fest in Christchurch. It brought many to tears and created an experience for those of us unlikely to ever have the courage to venture on the ice.
POSITIVE EXPOSURE working with New York based photographer Rick Guidotti to develop a travelling, interactive exhibit to house his wonderful images is pure joy. Wanting to showcase his work dynamically, Rick approached us to design a touring exhibit that itself would be a work of art but can be placed in all manner of foyers and exhibition halls. Currently waiting on fundraising. To learn more about Rick's work please visit www.positiveexposure.org
- MAPPING vs CRT
- It's always fun to play with big screens and a building is definitely one of those. Hampered by all sorts of issues that made even a grown woman stamp her foot we finally managed to get it together and had fun projecting in the the rain.
Thanks to Spyglass and Afterglow
The best thing to do at Kawarau is to throw yourself off the bridge. The next best thing briefly was to go into the Bungydome; an audio visual experience hinged around the emotion of jumping. Designed in the round the audience stand on a central turntable surrounded by 130 video monitors. The sequenced programme runs from 12 video source complemented by 5.1 sound and enough lights to be seen from the moon. Designed on the cusp of mapping technology ... another year and we would have designed in the round with projectors ...
- The R6 Project
- Auckland International Airport finally completed their runway upgrade that had been started in 1998 as portrayed in with Domain's award winning R2 video.
It is not easy making what is essentially a large concrete footpath exciting but we decided a series of time passing moments would provide scale.
The girth of Godzilla's tyres and the Airbus A380 helped as well.
- ABOUT US
- PRINCIPAL: Romola Lang with 20 years experience of mixing it up
- Not aligned with any particular technology Domain's underlying principle is to create a mix that suits the need. In any mixed media project whether temporary or permanent, the end result is articulated not only by lateral thinking but through clever people goaded into exceeding a brief and ultimately taking us all somewhere we have never been before. All of this feeds into any project that comes our way. From a simple marketing DVD for Fonterra, to the mixed media experience that was the world famous Giant Rugby Ball to the digital world that Spartacus wandered around in, Domain encourages production dynamically and tethers the result for all to appreciate.
