Eden Global Release Special Event | ENG SUB | Netflix Anime

On May 27, 2021 Netflix premiered their original Japanese anime series “EDEN”. The series features a post-human future, in which a pair of robots find and raise a human child.

Netflix engaged Empire to help generate additional excitement for the release by producing a one-of-a-kind talk show from within the animated world of Eden with the series’ director, Yasuhiro Irei, voice actors, Marika Kouno, Kentaro Ito, Kyoko Hikami and MC’d by Shinsuke Kasai.

Working with source material from the series and animated models from the Eden game, Empire carefully recreated the look and feel of two iconic scenes from the series into virtual sets that our cast could walk onto and explore. The robotic stars of the series were also animated to integrate into our sets and interact with our human cast.

Filming of the event took place on a green-screen sound stage in Tokyo, using multiple motion tracking cameras each tasked to dedicated Unreal Engine servers, allowing compositing of our cast into a real-time rendering of the Eden environment and the animated characters.

The result was a seamless immersion of the cast into the dreamlike world of Eden, and a captivating talk-show providing fans an additional layer of understanding and appreciation into this new hit series. The Special Event can be viewed here: https://lnkd.in/gJ2U3hC

Empire, a leading producer of live, hybrid, and virtual events across the globe, was honored to be selected by Netflix to produce this benchmark project.
