Sea life showcased in 8K on giant immersive screens in free film experience in London
A short film called Forsaken is now playing on Outernet London’s floor to ceiling wrap-around screens at Tottenham Court Road to highlight the mass extinction of life on earth. The films runs for an hour at 11am, 6pm & 9pm until mid-February.

Forsaken premiered on 11 January at Outernet London, Europe’s largest digital exhibition space, and is completely free for the public to visit.

Greenpeace ambassadors will be on site from 13-14 January and 6-7 February to inspire visitors to take action to protect  30% of the world’s oceans by 2030 and to support a deep sea mining ban.

The short was conceived & directed by award-winning director Roland Lane, produced by Frameless and animated by Cinesite. Under the direction of Roland, Andrew McNamara supervised the Cinesite crew with creative support from Head of Assets and Visual Development Madeleine Scott-Spencer. The team worked closely with Roland to develop the overall design and CG build of the different stages of the life-cycle of the immortal Jellyfish, crafting each stage of the narrative as well as blocking out general timings and movement to use the space effectively. The sequence was realised using Cinesite’s standard VFX and Animation workflow rendering up to 8K per wall and resolving back to a 360 degree video at 50 frame per second which was then remapped onto each LED video wall to give a full immersive experience.

The end result is an impactful film presented in 8k, on 360-degree floor-to-ceiling screens at Outernet London, set to a sound design by Gareth Fry & accompanied by motion graphics featuring official statistics from the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services designed by Jonny Stopford relating to species extinction caused by Climate Change.
