What if location-based entertainment could provide new insight into the inconceivable realities of past wars? Through installations at the Tribeca Film Festival and in Austin, TX, 'War Remains' transported hundreds of people directly to the front lines of the First World War. Using floor rumblers, wind effects and special haptics, along with a touchable physical set and the narration of Hardcore History's Dan Carlin, 'War Remains' allows people to experience one of the most nightmarish wars in history like never before.
This session shares key lessons learned for designing an LBE during the year-long production of 'War Remains', created by MWM Immersive in collaboration with Dan Carlin, Flight School Studio, and Skywalker Sound. It is a deep dive into how the speakers resolved design, audio, and technical challenges while maintaining a high level of historical accuracy, all within 650 square ft.
Best practices for utilizing handcrafted spaces, VR, sound design, and physical sensations to transport users into a massive and lifelike world. We'll breakdown lessons learned in physical and virtual set design, tools to motivate users to touch, move, and feel through these spaces as well as sound and narrative techniques.
Designers, LBE operators, and producers will find this talk valuable. Creators interested in merging tangible and virtual objects in an installation that motivates users toward deep immersion and interaction will benefit the most. Attendees should have a basic understanding of VR development.
