USC PRESENTS “LEVIATHAN: The Evolution of Storytelling”

AN EXPERIMENTAL STORY EXPERIENCE AT CES

[LAS VEGAS] [Jan. 6, 2014] – The USC School of Cinematic Arts World Building Media Lab is debuting “LEVIATHAN” at the Intel CES 2014 Exhibit. This experimental storytelling platform explores new possibilities in entertainment—where physical and virtual worlds connect through the power and flexibility of technology.
Emerging between the console and the home theater, LEVIATHAN lives on the digital rim, where the robust storytelling of film and literature meets the physical interactivity of gaming. This hybrid storytelling platform draws inspiration from both narrative & gameplay and delivers engagements that are both physical & digital. This is a space where the author controls the story, and the audience plays inside that story. Using an Intel powered 2 in 1 as a portal, fans will play with “Huxleys” (genetically engineered flying jellyfish) and follow the Leviathan whale on her voyage through CES.

Intel Labs develops technological innovations today for a better tomorrow in enterprise, consumer, and academics.
