Our business blog series…

Join us over the next few weeks to read interviews with some of the companies we have worked closely with on our most recent tour refurbishment. We will be posting an interview each week with five of the key people who worked on our project with us.

We speak to Klaus Kornblum from Tonwelt, the German based company who provided our audio devices, enabling us to offer 20 different languages on our tour including both British and American Sign Language.

We interview Douglas Bolton from Douglas Bolton AV, our technical consultant who specialises in audio visual and information technologies and hear about the challenges faced when working with many parties to bring our 5-star Visitor Attraction to the next level. We hear about his favourite project to date at The Scotch Whisky Experience – he has worked with us for many years!

Next up, we speak to Sheena Irving, a visual producer who brought her experience and organisational skills to the project and pulled all the various component parts together of the multi-lingual media into a structured package for Tonwelt to work with.

Freakworks who are a digital media production company were commissioned to shoot all of the amazing footage for our Sense of Scotland Room and produced the animated content for the Blenders’ Sample Room, including the ‘holodram’ effects. They tell us about their experience of filming in all the whisky regions of Scotland and how working around the Scottish weather was the main challenge!

Bright, who took on the overall role of designer and project manager tell us where they drew inspiration from when designing the recreation of a 1870s blending lab and how they were delighted that the digital elements of the experience still allowed the tour guides to play an integral part in delivering the story to visitors.

First up, is Tomwelt, read their interview with us here.
