Sea to Sea Prototype
IOU is a performing arts organisation based in Halifax with over 40 years of experience in making live shows and contemporary art installations. Collaborating with Anti Limited (a visual consultancy) and Leeds Beckett University, Sea to Sea Prototype is a project exploring immersive audio-visual experiences using geographically located digital storytelling.
Audiences will engage with the production via their smartphones on a train journey across the North of England. It can also be experienced as a 360 VR broadcast experience with video and audio capture, and as an online experience.
The project will produce a six-minute prototype of a final, more ambitious, storytelling project that will run for one year. The experience blends storytelling, creative writing and live events with film, audio and smartphone technology.
