The Wayback, a new U.K. virtual reality project aimed at helping people with dementia and Alzheimer's, launches with the first of a series of films that aim to spark memories by recreating memorable or iconic events of the past.

The film immerses viewers in events from the Queen's coronation in 1953 and was shot over two days on a North London street with special detail paid to anything that might spark a memory, including the clothes, the food and even the conversations from the day. Watching the coronation on TV, a street party, games and sing-a-longs are all recreated as authentically as possible to trigger the memories of those who were there on the day.

The Wayback project is the work of a collective including Kevin Thomas at Thomas Thomas Films, who wrote and directed it, Grey London creatives Dan Cole, Andy Garnett and Howard Green, and MPC, which worked on VFX.

Costume Designer Lorraine Kinman worked closely with director Kevin Thomas to achieve the authentic 1950's look you see in the short. All the core team have had loved ones affected by dementia and the entire cast and crew are volunteers.
