Last Whispers: An Immersive Oratorio
At an unprecedented speed, faster than the extinction of most endangered species, we are losing our linguistic diversity—and the very means by which we know ourselves. Last Whispers is an immersive oratorio, an invocation of the languages that have gone extinct and an incantation of those that are endangered.

The Tide: Episodes 1 & 2

Episode 1
One day, during a devastating drought, they suddenly started to appear. Gigantic fish with a taste for human flesh. Where will humanity hide?

Episode 2
As humans attempt to find safety, the man-eating sea creatures start to grow and evolve. Will humans find a way to stop them and survive?

Ghost Fleet VR
At 14, Tun Lin was kidnapped from Thailand and sold into slavery. He spent the next 14 years on a ship, forced to fish without pay. With the help of a humanitarian agency, Tun Lin escaped and returned home—but many are not so lucky.

Ghost Fleet VR offers epic storytelling and takes us to the ships, ports, and seas where the slave trade takes place, exposing these injustices and their relationship to the lucrative fishing industry.

RocketMan360
In the cockpit of his spaceship, an astronaut receives a 360-degree home movie from his girlfriend, just a few minutes before blasting off as one of the first colonists being sent to Mars to begin terraforming. The astronaut will not see his girlfriend again, and the earth may soon be unliveable. Rocketman360 is a sweet and sentimental final-generation love letter to an astronaut ready for a noble, dangerous mission.
