A LINHA

Team: Ricardo Laganaro (Project Creator), Ricardo Justus, Edouard de Montmort, Rodrigo Terra (Key Collaborators)

Country of production: Brazil

A Linha is an interactive narrative experience about love and the fear of change. Set upon a scale-model of 1940s São Paulo, you’ll experience the story of Pedro and Rosa—two miniature dolls perfect for each other—but reluctant to break boundaries and live out their love story.

ALEXA, CALL MOM!

Team: Nitzan Bartov (Project Creator), Char Simpson (Project Creator), Nouf Aljowaysir (Key Collaborator)

Country of production: USA

Alexa, Call Mom! is an interactive IoT installation about grief and love where one user explores Alexa’s channeling powers as a spiritual medium. Due to social distancing guidelines, we are presenting this virtual teaser in lieu of the physical installation.

Our story begins on Mother’s Day. You want to call your mother, but she’s dead. Thankfully, The Beyond Life Skill provides grieving Prime members with a connection to the beyond through Alexa, the Echo device. As you commune with the spirit of Mom, the conversation shifts between comfort and unpredictability.

BLOOD AND CHOCOLATE: A VARIATION ON QUEERSKINS: ARK

Team: Illya Szilak, Cyril Tsiboulski (Project Creators), Brandon Powers (choreographer), Intel Studios (co-producer)

Country of production: USA

Expected release: 2020

Blood & Chocolate is presented as a variation on Queerskins: ARK. This 360˚ video version presents a glimpse of an intimate lovers’ dance from Queerskins: ARK. That project – co-produced with Intel Studios and set for a 2020 release – harnesses volumetric video and spatial sound to tell the story of a mother who, reading the diary of her estranged son she has lost to AIDS, allows herself to picture him alive and in love. Entering her imagination, you become a co-creator of the experience through your body position and movements.
