Lyra Studio is an animation project at Carnegie Mellon University’s Entertainment Technology Center. We will be delivering an animated short film that will be presented to viewers using projection mapping technology. Utilizing the strengths of this medium, our goal is to produce an engaging narrative by blending spatial augmented reality with the use of real objects on a tabletop setting.

Alongside our production efforts, we are also developing a pre-production package for the animation project to be developed in Spring 2018 by a different team. The project will be based on an Egyptian myth named The Land of the Dead. As part of the package, we are developing a storyline, deciding on an artistic direction, and creating preliminary art assets.
