Our goal is to transform the future of mixed reality storytelling,
and contribute to the major issues that humanity faces. The camera is at the center of storytelling. Spatial computing will merge the real and the virtual more and more. Diversity of opinion is valuable. People make sense of the world through stories, but they remember by doing.

We are inundated with opinions.
The traditional news industry is broken. Social media has ultimately polluted the landscape of public dialogue even more than it helped it. And in order to meet both the 24hr news cycle and the social media system, complex issues have been simplified to the point of being meaningless. Using VR & AR to tell stories allows the audience to think in ways that a film or article couldn't do. Using virtual reality as a medium creates more space for audience interpretation.
