We were in Cleveland for the 12/12/12 soft launch of ArtLens, CMA’s new mobile app for iPad and visitor education lounge, Gallery One. Gallery One, and the ArtLens app design and programming were created by Local Projects, while Earprint Productions designed and created the multimedia content for the ArtLens app.
ArtLens features more than three dozen interviews with curators, community members and museum staff. The app uses cutting-edge image-recognition technology, allowing visitors to scan an artwork to see more detail, as well as wayfinding and location technology.
This is one of the multimedia content segments Earprint Productions produced for The Cleveland Museum of Art’s mobile iPad app, ArtLens.
Each collection object we interpreted has 2 to 5 content segments (audio slideshows, video, text, or scannable “hot spot” content), organized by theme, giving the repeat visitor a depth of information that will allow them to explore different aspects of a work of art each time they visit.
This is a sample of multimedia content for Artlens, the Cleveland Museum of Art’s new iPad app, produced by Earprint Productions for Claude Monet, Water Lilies (c.1915-1926).
Each object interpreted has 2 to 5 video or audio slideshow segments featuring the voices of museum curators, artists, conservators or community members, and supplemental images to enhance understanding of works of art in the collection. In a departure from traditional audio tours, ArtLens doesn’t use narration, but instead creates conversations.
Last year, we started designing iPad interactives that virtually put advanced museum conservation tools into visitors’ hands. Our latest, an exploration of Picasso’s La Vie at the Cleveland Museum of Art, launched in conjunction with CMA and Local Projects‘ Gallery One.
On April 21, 1937, the very first revenue passengers, all seven of them, boarded a giant four-engine Pan American Airways flying boat and flew across the Pacific Ocean. In commemoration of this pioneering achievement in aviation, SFO Museum presents a three-part podcast series titled, Clipper Glory: The Dawn of Ocean Air Transport. These original interviews with Pan Am flying boat crewmembers and first-person accounts of the airline’s island bases personnel recreate the sensation and excitement of this new air service that forever changed the world and laid the foundation for today’s global air system. Podcast by SFO and Earprint Productions.
We worked with exhibition curators and the CMA for a couple of months writing, recording and producing the mobile tour. We’re proud of the mobile experience we’ve created for visitors, and we can’t wait to see the exhibition in person at the end of the month!
Recently closed: “A Moving Masterpiece: The Song Dynasty as Living Art”. It’s an amazing animated version of the “Qing Ming Shang He Tu”, which describes life along the river in the Northern Song capital of Kaifeng in the 11th century.

New in the iTunes app store: the National Museum of African Art’s “Artists in Dialogue 2″ app. The app is a collaboration between the museum, Tristan Interactive, and Earprint Productions.
In this bilingual (English and Brazilian Portuguese) tour, two artists, Sandile Zulu of South Africa and Henrique Oliveira of Brazil, have engaged in a visual call and response that transcends national or geographic borders.
Take a tour of the exhibition guided by curator Karen Milbourne or listen to the artists describe the works of art, talk about one another and discuss their collaborative process in their own words. This application invites you to join the conversation using Twitter, post questions for the artists on YouTube, experiment virtually with the artists’ technique in an art-making game, test your knowledge of South Africa and Brazil, and learn more about what’s happening at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African Art.
Mobile multimedia tour written and produced by Earprint Productions, in collaboration with SFMOMA.
Narrated by Andrew Chaikin, with character voices by Charlie Varon, Maia Krache, and Beth Lisick.
The Steins — a family of American expatriates in bohemian Paris at the turn of the 20th century — were among the first to recognize the talents of avant-garde painters like Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso.
This landmark exhibition at SFMOMA draws on collections around the world to reunite the Steins’ unparalleled holdings of modern art. Who were the Steins, what was it like to be a part of their salons, and how far did their influence reach? The paintings on the wall have become classics, but what was it like seeing them when the paint was still fresh?The multimedia tour features quotes from the Steins and their creative contemporaries, interwoven with curatorial commentaries to bring the issues and artworks to life.
