BBC Frozen Planet Augmented Reality Magic


To spread the word about the Blu-ray/DVD Frozen Planet release, BBC Home Entertainment partnered with digital creative agency Appshaker Ltd to create an awesome augmented reality experience. Using 4 distinctive broadcast quality 3D scenes, they delighted crowds, giving them a fun opportunity – kids and adults alike got to interact with animals from the Polar Region!

The three market tour ran from April 19 – April 22 in New Jersey, Illinois and California and was inspired by the television series Frozen Planet, co produced by BBC/Discovery Channel, which made its US television debut March 18th on Discovery reaching over 25 million viewers.
