Into Atlantis: an undiscovered immersive experience
The legend of Atlantis is a well-known story about a moral, spiritual people who lived in a highly advanced, utopian civilization. But they became greedy, petty, and "morally bankrupt," and the gods "became angry because the people had lost their way and turned to immoral pursuits." As
punishment, the gods sent one terrible night of fire and
earthquakes, causing the city to drown...
But what if Atlantis never died? What if in their world, WE ARE THE MYTH? The life above the water.
Into Atlantis is an immersive experience pitch that explores storytelling, world-building, and affordances of media and incorporates it into event planning for the public.
