Die Reise zum Mond – Zu Ehren von Georges Méliès

Zu Ehren des französischen Illusionisten und Regisseurs Georges Méliès haben die Mitarbeiter von Google Doodle, Google Spotlight Stories, Google Arts & Culture und Cinémathèque Française gemeinsam das erste interaktive 360°-Doodle in VR geschaffen.

The Google Doodle, Google Spotlight Stories, Google Arts & Culture, & Cinémathèque Française teams have collaborated to create the first-ever Virtual Reality (VR) / 360° interactive Doodle to celebrate the life and artistry of French illusionist and film director Georges Méliès. Produced by Nexus Studios.

Hier die VR Version von Back to the Moon

Hier die Kurzfilm Version (theatrical)

Produced by Nexus Studios and co-directed by Fx Goby and Doodles’ Hélène Leroux, ‘Back to the Moon’ celebrates pioneering illusionist and filmmaker Georges Méliès.

In a first-of-its-kind collaboration between Google Doodles, Google Spotlight Stories, Google Arts and Culture, Cinématèque Française and Nexus Studios, the film launched as the first ever virtual reality (VR) / 360 interactive Google Doodle.

 Transporting the viewer inside his magical world via some of his best known films, styles, techniques and characters, the film also features a Mathieu Alvado score recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra.

Says Fx:
“Méliès is one of my personal heroes, and being able to pay tribute to him in such a visible way is both a rare opportunity and a huge privilege.  There’s nothing in the film which hasn’t been considered through the Méliès lens; the shape of the stars, the contents on the table, every object has a story behind it which is linked to him.”

Laurent Manonni, director of heritage at The Cinématèque Française notes of Méliès:
“I have no doubt he would have been flattered to find himself in the limelight via today’s first virtual reality / 360 Google Doodle, propelled around the world thanks to a new medium with boundless magical powers.”
