Envisioning Center: Interactive Storyworld

Microsoft

Microsoft Strategic Prototyping Group

Experience Design

What is the potential for storytelling in the next five to ten years?

Microsoft’s Strategic Prototyping Group asked Belle & Wissell to help them explore what the future of a family’s story-time might be like—with a resulting media experience that is presented at the new Microsoft Envisioning Center. This original story comes to life through a series of seamless interactions, in a dynamically illustrated (and animated) world.

The experience centers around active participation of a child, her grandmother, and the child’s stuffed lion (who becomes the central character).

Belle & Wissell’s content development team worked in close collaboration with Microsoft’s internal programming group to create an innovative interactive experience that tells a thoughtful and timeless story about his adventure in search of his beloved cherry blossom.

Many unique interactive methods and combinations of Microsoft’s latest technologies are utilized to explore the potential of what storytelling might look like in the future–a truly theatrical and exciting experience.
