Draw Me Close Uses VR, Props, And Performance To Evoke Childhood
There is a multitude of scientific studies on how complex memory is. How audio, smell, even taste, can take you back somewhere. That is to say, sensory immersion can help stir recollections and feelings of that past. What better way to immerse yourself and stir up emotions than with an immersive medium like virtual reality?

IKinema Orion in AnimationXpress: cutting edge tech harnessed to create first of its kind live virtual experience

‘Draw Me Close’ promises to provide a first of its kind immersive experience during its world premiere at Tribeca Film Festival

Launching on 21 April at Tribeca Film Festival’s Storyscapes, Draw Me Close blurs the worlds of live performance, virtual reality and animation to create a vivid memoir about the relationship between a mother and her son in the wake of her terminal-cancer diagnosis. Weaving theatrical storytelling with cutting-edge technology, the project takes a deceptively simple and humanistic approach to the immersive medium: it allows the audience member to experience life as a five-year-old Jordan, inside a live, animated world.
