‘A Miscarriage of Justice AR‘, is a transmedia documentary which uses immersive interactive augmented reality technologies as a way to bring the execution of Ronald Joseph Ryan the last man hanged in Australia in 1967 and Jean Lee the last woman hanged in Australia in 1951 to life.
The augmented reality (AR) component of the project uses ‘Live Action ‘ and ‘AI – Artificial Intelligence’ that we are prototyping. This part of the project brings the spectator face to face with Ronald Ryan in two scenes and gives the spectator the option of participating is Ryan’s escape. It takes on a game play scenario, much like a ‘choose your own adventure’ style play. Other aspects of the AR experience have you scaling the infamous bluestone wall with your mobile device to reveal the characters who feature in the virtual reality film component and presents actual facts in a documentary style using voice over and archival images, which are revealed once you locate the markers on the bluestone wall which trigger the experience.
It’s purpose is to promote and preserve history as well as create awareness around capital punishment.
Currently in post production.
