Discovery Never Ends
More often than not, video and film is about how to represent the world in which we live. Most “blank slates” are not truly blank. But when it comes to gaming, the tabula rasa knows no edge — worlds are not just reflected, they’re created.
Seagate brought us on board to dive into their first ever gaming event, awarding full production of the event to La Storia, including concepting, production, and all post-production responsibilities.
To kick it off we collectively plunged into the infinite depths of 3D animation, where anything was possible. Piece by piece we imagined a journey through a vast landscape of sand-like particles and otherworldly, monolithic structures. But as our minds walked through those spaces alongside the Seagate team, we all realized that while gaming may take you somewhere else, it does so with the technology of the here and now. So we scaled back the fantastical aesthetic of an unknown world, and shifted to building one that feels slightly familiar, and just within reach. An island. A portal. A future.
