Take a peek at the Buffalo Trace’s Bourbon Pompeii as the ruins were being excavated, thanks to this walk-through video made last year by Bill Gregory, director and founder of Enomalies, a Kentucky company that specializes in 3D imaging.
The company is a spinoff of the University of Kentucky’s Center for Visualization and Virtual Environments that created innovative giant movable projection screens for the UK Opera Theatre’s production of “Porgy and Bess” in 2011; Gregory also created a robotic boat used in UK’s production of “Phantom of the Opera.”
Gregory created a Bourbon Pompeii interactive video, last year after reading about the discovery of the ruins of Col. E.H. Taylor’s first distilleries along the Kentucky River in Frankfort, inside a building at Buffalo Trace. As the site was being excavated by bourbon archaeologist Nicolas Laracuente and prepared for the catwalks to hold visitors, Gregory used high-tech imaging cameras to record it.
