RearWindows

In an isolated mansion on a windswept moor, a man and woman face shadowy horrors, strange and unknown, from both within the walls of their home and from the dark corners of their own psyches…

Exploring the future of digital storytelling, RearWindows combines the real with the virtual, bringing physical sets to life with digitally produced visual content. Its cross-platform integration combines smartphones, tablets, Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) headsets, where users can co-explore and interact through a unique interactive experience, all in real-time.

 

The first demonstration of this platform is an AR/VR experience based around a 20th Century horror novel called ‘House of the Borderlands’, which was selected for its surrealistic plot, non-linear narrative and supernatural themes fitting the fantastical potential of combining both augmented and virtual realities with a miniature physical set.
