AE2 – Journey into the Dardanelles was a stand alone narrative drama that told the story of Lt Commander Stoker and his crew who were given the order to “Run Amok” in the Sea of Marmara. Luscious worked closely with the Australian War Memorial curatorial team to develop the narrative story of the AE2 and the crew’s journey.

With only a handful of photographs of the AE2 and the original design blueprints the dLuscious 3D team set the task of creating a fully synthesised 3D and motion graphic movie. Using period based techniques the team developed unique and distinct styles that captured the essence of the era. With no audio accompaniment a text-based approach was used to tell the story, this placed a greater reliance on text design and readability to convey essential facts.
