Google Lion Movie Premiere
Google partnered with The Weinstein Company to celebrate the premiere of the movie “Lion,” the amazing story of Saroo Brierley’s journey back to his birth town in rural India from his adopted world in Australia. Because Google Earth had made Saroo’s incredible journey possible, the MAS team was tasked with bringing this to life at the event and showcasing other Google “magic” that would appeal to the Hollywood crowd in attendance. To do so, MAS transformed a space in the Google offices into “a taste of India” for the evening, also integrating other sights, sounds, and experiences that would connect guests to this powerful global story. Scenes from the movie were shown as one seamless video on a wireless, multi-device video wall. Guests were invited to travel the world with Google’s Daydream virtual reality headset and follow Brierley from Kolkata to Tasmania through
an interactive Google Earth display.
