scope

At the Ethnographic Museum in Stockholm, an exhibition is now on display, We Are Seediq, about an indigenous Taiwanese people. Central to the exhibition is the 360 film, which encloces the viewer in a gigantic panorama. How did we manage to create it? The collaboration with Etnografiska, Swedish Frames, Mevida and composer Henrik Lörstad turned out to be a hit.

The film "Work in Stockholm" documents the indigenous people's search for their roots and history. The fact that an indigenous people from Taiwan takes Stockholm for help to find its origins has its explanation in the museum's way of working.

Medea Ekner from the Ethnographic Museum made the vision clear early on. With the help of 12 projectors, a 100 square meter circular screen and eight separate sound channels, the indigenous people would have a permanent place in Stockholm, in the heart of the museum.

Two projectors

Genuine landscape images from the indigenous environment in Taiwan have been stitched together into the circular format using VR and Unreal. Entering the Stockholm Room is a journey through time and space. Authenticity is central to the project, each mountain peak has been approved by the museum and Taiwan in cooperation.

Composing, music and sound for an enclosing film is something different from Cinema. Henrik Lörstad's sound work mixes local sound impressions with several languages - Swedish, Mandarin and English.

Behind "We Are Seediq" lies extensive technical work - but where storytelling is at center. Editor and VFX artist Johanna Gåhlin carefully handled the material during the editing process.
