In 2023 we were commissioned to provide a full media package for the Oman Botanic Garden, an iconic cultural project which will showcase Oman’s astonishing environments and plant life.
Our team has spent the last two years working closely with the Garden’s botanical, horticultural and interpretation teams to develop media for onsite interpretation, outreach, education and marketing. At the heart of this was a year in the field, during which our film and photography team travelled across Oman, to all the key environments, in all seasons, documenting the habitats and plants, along with related ethnobotany and culture. Over 200 days were spent under canvas, guided by Oman’s leading botanists, generating a huge database of assets, including 10,000 images, 45 hours of video and 20 hours of ambient audio recordings. These assets are now the cornerstone of the Garden’s interpretation, marketing and outreach programmes. They have been used by our post production team to create panoramic video projections, interactive touchscreen programmes and ambient audio, and fed into the work of the graphics and App development teams, helping to enrich the Garden experience and connect it to the diverse environments on which is it based.
The garden is scheduled to open in 2025.
