Due to a restoration, people were temporarily unable to visit the Rijksmuseum to view the Night Watch. So the assignment was simple: let the viewer experience The Night Watch while the museum is closed.
With primary school students as the target group, the video had to be an accessible and fun experience. The museum also wanted to use VR as an innovative technique. In 8K resolution, the video was recorded in Dutch and English. In the movie called ‘Dive deeper into The Night Watch’, Tyi guides you through the ins & outs of the Night Watch.
Bureau: VR Owl
Type of production: 360 video campaign
Target group: Primary school students
Duration of the video: 04:30
Use of project: Communication
We created zooms in the edit with a digital scan of the painting. This allows you to see details of the Night Watch that you would not be able to see during a normal museum visit. This together with sound effects ensures that you are almost literally drawn into the painting.
In a fun way you get to learn about the time period, the painter and the cultural impact of this painting. Tyi also tells you why this painting became so famous.
