You Are Here is a 40 min real-time simulated short film made and performed in Unity3D, and in collaboration with Jadda Tsui. Before the screening, the audience is invited one a time into a booth to be interviewed and have their face captured. The results of these interviews in turn drive elements of You Are Here’s story and structure, and the audience itself pops up as the characters. You Are Here is largely performative- live narration and interaction is important and ensures, like a digital play, that no two performances will be the same. The simulation also will sometimes do entirely unexpected or unfortunate things, and wrangling it in the right direction is an equally important aspect.
