Armonia

Festa

This is a story of love and harmony brought to life as a 360 animation and piano concerto. Armonia articulates the journey of discovery along the circle of life. It occurs among the abstract yet familiar sights and sounds of purity. Armonia premiered in virtual reality at the 2019 TriBeca Film Festival. Cannes is the next stage of our global film fest tour.

The Remake

Armonia is now pursuing a $300K remake to transform into an interactive VR experience. 

 

  • Network Model – Bringing multiple people into the same VR experience so they can interact with each other inside Armonia.
  • Interactivity – Empowering people with the ability to influence the virtual environment. Various forms of optical focus and/or hand movement will cause slight alterations in what the users see and hear.
  • Sensory Enhancements – Improving Armonia’s image quality and soundscape to create a fuller, more robust sensory experience that heightens feelings of immersion.

A New Concept

While building and editing Armonia inside a “game engine” (a powerful software that hosts and exports massive image and audio files), we discovered a new production workflow we are calling PSi.

Today, major media productions are marketed as brands. No longer is the task simply to create a film. Producers must enrich the film’s brand with a behind the scenes series, content across major social media channels, a sound track, a mobile experience, etc.

Armonia Festa is a production concept that leverages the technical power of a game engine to create these transmedia experiences at 20% the average cost of today’s major media productions.
