Award Winner at DOK Leipzig Hackathon

Due to my work in transmedia performance, I was invited to attend an interactive documentary Hackathon as part of the DOK festival in Leipzig. I was placed within a group of international storytellers from different fields.

Over a short and intense three-day development period, we created Bottle Episode, a VR prototype in two parts, which dealt with mental health and anxiety. It was designed for the Oculus Rift headset. Below is a video about the project.

Our team received the jury’s Kickstarter award for its innovative approach to using VR in the field of mental health and its level of technical, narrative and visual sophistication.

Team Three: Simon Ryninks (director), Eric Schockmel (animator), Adriaan Wormgoor (creative technologist), Lauren Moffatt (VR artist), Israel Bañuelos (sound designer).
