The 9 students were asked to reflect on their confinement environments and express their feelings about it. Though they knew the final project would be in VR, they began with conventional photography. They then learned photogrammetry with their smartphones (mostly using Metashape) and how to export to and compose in Unity, while also writing and recording 30-second personal voice-overs and background audio. They also added simple shapes, lighting, and “camera on rails” movement, then exported to stereo-panoramic video, which we titled and uploaded to YouTube as a 5-minute a 3D 360 video.

This creative project provides an in-depth view that melds both fiction and non-fiction interpretations of Lakshmi, The Great Goddess of Prosperity and Fortune. Of Hindu beliefs, Lakshmi is a goddess respected and loved by her faithful followers for the moral values she holds and implements on others. Join me in this creative experience of the animation I have created to appreciate The Legend of Lakshmi.
