From Linear Filmmaking to Immersive Storytelling


Michelle and Uriel Kranot’s celebrated careers have seen them make numerous award-winning shorts, create extraordinary animated VR installations and experiences, produce the ANIDOX program – giving birth to new animated documentaries (Flee as one of many examples).

Giving insight into their work and their processes, this session will focus on their approaches to animated documentary and immersive storytelling.

By demonstrating the case of The Hangman at Home – A multi-awarded VR experience, Uriel Kranot will discuss the process of working in non-linear immersive storytelling and how the medium is changing the way we tell stories.

The Hangman at Home begins with a call-to-action, as the user is asked to light a match to ignite the narrative. This non-linear, layered story is both interactive and observational.

Users are given the choice to cross different thresholds, such as a door, a window, or a fireplace; each is a portal to a room where one of five animated scenes unfolds.

At THIS 2022, you will have a chance to try the VR experience yourself, as it will be available as a side event throughout all three days of the festival.

All you need to do is to sign up and ready youself for a deep dive into immersive storytelling.
