Alchemica: an augmented reality revolution
Having a vision and being able to realise it. This is Alchemica. Months ago we organised an exhibition of professional illustrators who did splendid works for us. To give it all added value, our firm created an ad hoc animation for each illustration, with surprising results. At that point, we asked ourselves how we could show the public these animations and that is where the idea of developing an augmented reality app came from: you take your phone, download the app, focus on the image and voilà - the illustration comes to life! How is it possible?? It was a tortuous road but we love challenges. We worked on it for almost a year without giving up. Finally in June we saw the first results and Alchemica touched down at a real show, creating a unique, new, and revolutionary experience!
The application is, however, still in its developmental stage and we need funds to be able to develop it to its full potential on both IOS and Android. That is why we are asking for your help. On 27 November, we will be launching the definitive exhibition at BASE in Milan, with a total of 32 illustrations, and we aim for it to go on tour across Italy and abroad!
If you help us realise this dream, we promise you a leap forward into the imaginary future. Together we will export Italian creativity, innovation and quality to the world.
AlchemIca: an app to be supported
The funds will be used to implement the application in both iOS and android versions. Improve video playback so that experience is even more real and exciting, add share options and develop a system to contain an unlimited number of tables. Add more localization features and partly fund the December show and manage future itinerant locations for Italy and the world.
Alchemica: a team at workBehind the project is the Alkanoids
Behind the project is the Alkanoids study. Six years of history characterized by research and development in the world of graphics, motion design and illustration. We never stopped exploring with personal technical projects, technology, and investing always on people who make up the team. We have collaborated with the biggest brands and TV channels, always trying to test our borders. Obviously beyond us are the 16 artists who have decided to collaborate with us in the first edition: MONICA ALLETTO - LIMO VIE - HIKIMI - FRANCESCO CAPORALE - STEFANO COLFERAI - SARAH EDITH - CHIARA GHIGLIAZZA - JOHNNY COBALTO - ROBERTA MADDALENA - DAVIDE MAZZUCHIN - FAUSTO MONTANARI - ANNA PIROLLI - GIORDANO POLONI - CHIARA RIBERTI - ALESSIO SALATINO - FABIO VALESINI The animators: VALRIO BOSI - MARIO RUGGIERO - MARILISA BESANA - ALESSANDRO NOBILE - MARCO MELONI - EMANUELE COLOMBO - GABRIELE CALVI
LUCA TOMMASONI and app developers.
This is what we always try to create: new synergies, tools that can expand the chances of man.
Project created by
We are a motion design studio founded in 2012 by Yuh Kuo Tai, Raffaella Roccella and Manolo Turri. Along with us, we work with a team of great designers with whom we daily explore, search and test ourselves to not content ourselves with the existing and always strive for the challenge. So we have won our customers including major brands and major satellite and non-satellite TV channels. That's how we came to Alchemica devoting soul and body to a wonderful personal project that started living through the collaboration of 32 artists in the world of illustration.
