Synopsis

If we ever found ourselves alone in the woods, grass between our toes, the sun receding over the horizon, what ancient thing might stir from within? Ancient mystics revered the natural world above all else. Waves lapping at the shoreline, undergrowth humming with life, and eve the dank, gritty soil itself embody myriad aspects of a deeply mysterious godhead. A reckoning with one’s surroundings might yet inform and challenge our tightly-held conceptions of self and other. Explore an island tucked away in the mists of days long passed. Unearth the ancient secrets of this forgotten place, and become one with the spirit.

Director’s Statement

With music from Danheim, Spirit of Place is a open-world nonlinear immersive storytelling experience that seeks to imbue the audience with a sense of oneness with our environment. While more traditional media formats feed simple, linear narratives to the audience, virtual reality demands new thinking. Roam and discover fragments of history and verse scattered throughout this broken world. In this experience, we explore a complicated world. Some clearings are serene, whilst others have seen difficult times. Guided through the experience, we find the narrator, a mysterious figure who poetically laments days gone by.
