What we do

Revolutionary Narrative in Virtual Reality

“The leading non-gaming VR Company”



We believe in fully immersive storytelling, where the viewer no longer watches a story unfold on a television screen but is instead placed inside the scene with action taking place all around them.

A bit about us


Born out of a collaboration between Atlantic Productions  and  Zoo VFX our vision is to create the most compelling virtual reality narrative experiences in the world.

 Our experiences cover the natural world with David Attenborough to a journey inside the Egyptian pyramids to travelling inside the human body.


Alchemy VR is working in partnership with several leading technology companies including Samsung, Google Expeditions, Sony and HTC, and is in partnership with museums such as the Natural History Museum in London and the Australian Museum in Sydney.

First Life VR with David Attenborough won the World Summit Award in 2015. First Life and Great Barrier Reef Dive with David Attenborough are currently showing at London’s Natural History Museum and the Australian Museum in Sydney.

Alchemy has made several projects for Google Expeditions and is soon to release experiences on pyramids and human body.

David Attenborough’s First Life VR and Great Barrier Reef VR at the Natural History Museum



“It takes you to places you could have never dreamed existed,
…and you have a vivid feeling of actually being there. 
It’s an experience you don’t forget”

Sir David Attenborough


David Attenbough’s First Life VR is a ten minute short documentary which transports the viewer back in time to the Cambrian Oceans as they were more than 500 million years ago. The project features an original narration by Sir David Attenborough, and is the first public project of Alchemy VR.

David Attenborough takes audiences on a VR adventure deep beneath the waves to explore the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef in a state-of-the-art Triton submersible. This experience accompanies Atlantic Productions award-winning BBC series David Attenborough’s Great Barrier Reef.

We’re on the brink of a simply enormous change in visual communication
