The Interview: Real life stories in VR

Project partners: BRiGHTBLACK

XR Stories partnered with BRiGHTBLACK to deliver training and mentoring for six projects commissioned as part of the Storylab project.

The Interview was a collaborative project between creative producers Kate Wellham, Mike Leigh Cooper, Joseph Hird and Imran Azam. The project was created in Unity Games Engine, following hands-on development training in the software.

The project explores bias and discrimination in the higher education sector by putting the audience in a hypothetical scenario in VR. Set in the world of a fictionalised top-level university, the team used real-life stories to build their dramatised script and put the audience in the position of existing in a world in which they are made to feel that they don’t belong.
