The full piece will allow the audience to choose between experiencing a salad being made (linked in video documentation) or a burger (which is the Project URL YouTube link). We use a Gear VR for viewing the 360 video. For the interaction, we are using Wonda VR and gaze detection.
Work to be completed: Info popups using Wonda VR 360 video editing software. Sound Spatialization using the Reaper DAW.
you enter into a park emptying of people as a film begins to play on the projector. the sun is setting and you feel as though everyone is leaving and you are the only one left. as the film continues, buildings begin to fall off the street and others grow in their place, if you turn around you will see lifeless characters arrive to sit and watch the film. a plethora of experiences, aesthetic and story-driven, are meant to give you a feeling of loss and replacement.
This project is a interdepartmental collaboration between both the Graduate Film Department and the Graduate Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) at New York University. As such there is a partnership made between two students from each department as co-creators of the story. Additionally, they will fulfill their specific roles in the project in accordance with their perspective disciplines. We are also excited to include several high level industry professionals as creative partners. Thus this project is representation of the collaborative process and experimental nature of technology and storytelling.
