Departure Lounge Inc. is a diversified and nimble holding company that takes advantage of synergistic Metaverse trends while seeking autonomous ownership of the key-value creation points in the ecosystem. To support their Metaverse-related technology and content initiatives, our team built a digital replica of the Vancouver Departure Lounge Metastage Facility with a PC-based immersive virtual tour of the Metastage, a volumetric capture studio, housed inside the digital Departure Lounge studio.
The goal is to build a fully-functional virtual tour for senior product managers in entertainment industries who are seeking to improve efficiency and reduce the cost of virtual productions while creating true-to-life models.
On this project, I solidified the look and feel according client specifications and ease of navigation through clear and concise art direction, and uncluttered UI. I also worked on the UX design together with my team to create the narrative structure of the experience. Later, I recorded all audio for the guided tour and developed a style guide for Departure Lounge Inc. to use moving forward. Finally, I art directed and created a promotional trailer in Unreal Engine and After Effects, with technical assistance from my team's developer.
Made with Unreal Engine sequencer and After Effects.
