Current Film Festival Presentation

/ amoeba.Iluminatus trilogy VR/TV presentation

In 2016 with we worked together to obtain the script option
for the best selling novels from the 1970's called The Illimunatus Trilogy
for use in VR/AR and TV.

To promote our initial TV show idea in 2016-2018 we built interactive VR and AR Demos for the I.P. and showcased them at various film/tv/vr/xr/games symposiums in Europe, UK and USA to gather interest and publicity.

Presenting the VR experiences and talking about our strategy to get our TV show made at The Rotterdam International Film Festival in 2017/2018,
VR Europe
2017/2018, VR Days Amsterdam 2016 and Red Stick Games Symposium, Baton Rouge Louisiana 2018

Since showing the Illuminatus VR/AR demo at these events we are now creating a full length interactive, character based narrative experience.
Using a bespoke face capture APP to capture the actors facial performance direct where it is composed onto the character as we capture the traditional body motion capture.

_ Ix3: the process of an idea

A 30 minute creative presentation with videos and walkthroughs,
outlining the process of taking an initial idea through concept, obtaining
the IP, creating the brief, making the design bible, writing scripts, starting the video and VR production process, motion capture and creating a narrative
multi platform VR experience.

By using our Illuminatus Trilogy project as a template I can show how as a small studio we were able to take our idea from start to finish and compete
with larger established studios
