Professor Shanku, the brilliant scientist, known for his numerous adventures, is a famous literary creation of Satyajit Ray. SVF, to pay tribute to such a legendary character and his creator, made a film on one of his adventures, to El Dorado. Andreal supported them with our expertise medium, that is Xtended Reality. This was the first time in Bengali cinema that Augmented and Virtual Reality was being used for the promotion of a film. We made huge cut-outs of Professor Shanku, played by the veteran actor Dhritiman Chatterjee. These were no normal cut-outs but embedded with Augmented Reality, as a result of which, every time someone stood beside the cut-out to take a picture, the cut-out moved as if real.
A virtual tour of the Professor’s laboratory was made available to the audience along with the ‘Magic Diary’ which was magical due to its AR-embedment.
