We are Studio Duat, a student-led art studio exploring new and immersive mediums for storytelling. This semester, we are producing an environmental experience to take viewers through the realms of Egyptian mythology, traveling the path through the Duat, the Lands of the Dead. We are developing this experience to be delivered equally well across two different platforms; Oculus, and the CAVE.
In addition to this production, we are creating a pre-production package for the next semester’s studio. This package is based on Sirena of Guam, a folktale which tells the origin story of a mermaid. We are developing the artistic direction, storyline, and creating preliminary art assets for a traditional pipeline for this concept.
