"iTERaTOR is the final conjunction of all those things I learned, and I shouldn’t have, during the years I spent in Falmouth. It’s an interactive, 360 audio, live experimental film exhibition which is inspired by Bardo Thödol, The Tibetan book of death. The exhibition itself will consist of a large cube with interactive features that enable the public to explore chapters of the 'Book of Death' via each face of the cube.
The concept is at the base of everything, the book itself is incredibly visually detailed; It describes the journey your soul will do on the subsequent days after death, all the way to the reincarnation into the new family that will guest you.
What really caught my attention is how many people are influenced by the ignorance of what happens afterlife; iTERaTOR comes to help thinking about this. The time you can spend playing, thinking or meditating inside this infinity room will make you realize how what we have is temporary and how much we must appreciate it, without feeling guilty or sad about it, but by embracing that moment"
Director - Luca Salvagno
The team we are working with is fairly small; only four people, cast excluded will work in this project, allowing so to give everybody space to propose ideas and discuss them.

iTERaTOR, being interactive, require more attention in the pre-production phase and during the exhibition with all the tools needed to live-monitor the position of the cube and adjust the 360 images in order to always match up chapters with the respective audio.
