S3A and BBC Research have won the TVB Europe Award for Best Achievement in Sound last night for ’The Turning Forest’ VR sound experience using the spatial audio Radio Drama produced in S3A integrated into an immersive audio-visual experience by the BBC. The award was made at the European TV Industry awards last night, with S3A winning against entries from Britain’s Got Talent, Sky’s the Five and BBC TV Programme coverage.
‘The Turning Forest’ was premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in May and has been touring international film festivals for the last 6 months with very positive reviews. The VR experience is also being released as a VR plugin download via Apple and Google stores.
This is a great early impact for S3A from research in the first two years of the programme.
