Immersive Experiences by Falcon’s Creative Group Brings Jane Goodall’s Story to Life at National Geographic Exhibition

Through a variety of innovative multi-media storytelling techniques and technologies, “Becoming Jane” delves into the iconic scientist’s remarkable journey and how she became one of the world’s leading conservationists. Learn more:

Photo-realistic computer-generated imagery (CGI), 3D projection mapping, holographic displays, virtual character interactives, and augmented reality (AR) headsets were produced and developed by Falcon’s Creative Group, an Orlando-based experience design company.

Exhibition highlights:

  • A projected picture gallery that transforms into an introductory film, with an unexpected visit from a curious chimpanzee appearing to leap out of the screens and move around the room.
  • A life-size hologram-like projection of Jane sharing her most memorable recollections.
  • An immersive 3D 10K theater experience that recreates Jane’s point-of-view during her first encounters with chimpanzees. The film seamlessly incorporates photo-realistic computer animation with 3D virtual reality camera footage of Gombe Stream National Park.
  • A Falcon’s Vision™ augmented reality binocular experience with personalized engagement and interaction with virtual chimpanzees.
  • A “Chimp Chat” interactive installation where visitors can vocalize and communicate with a virtual chimpanzee.

This is the third such collaboration between the National Geographic Museum and Falcon’s Creative Group, previously joining forces on “Tomb of Christ” and “Queens of Egypt.” Falcon’s was also the lead designer and media contributor for “National Geographic Encounter: Ocean Odyssey” in Times Square.

The “Becoming Jane” exhibition is organized in partnership with the Jane Goodall Institute and is now open at the National Geographic Museum in Washington, D.C. through September 7, 2020. Then, it will travel to Los Angeles in late 2020 and more cities over the next five years.
