A futurist approach to living within a dome in a supposedly uninhabitable, dystopian environment
This project was created by myself (Danielle McLean,) Alicia Brenk, & Betty Kennedy
We chose to work together to create a Mixed Reality, Sci-fi short film set in a post-apocalyptic world that has been eradicated of all life except for a small regime of Robots that have built a safe house. It is a narrative about someone who has chosen to live inside this dome with only the company of an AI Robot. Despite his current belief that there is no life beyond the dome one night he sees a light and decides to go find out what it is.
We created this using mixed reality techniques; aiming to create computer-generated hyper-realism to evoke themes of isolation. We filmed a live actor and built our environments all in CG using Maya and Unreal engine.

We filmed a live actor and built our environments all in CG using Maya and Unreal engine. The aim of this project was to delve into the world of Sci-Fi which we were all equally interested in, however we wanted to experiment with a narrative which was not necessarily the generic grim and irreparable argument. This idea carried out through many of the asset developments such as the demeanor and overall caricature of our AI robot.
My main contributions to this project were the modelling and rigging of our AI character, modelling of the Dome housing that our protagonist resides in, modelling of the settlement, the hologram motion graphics, compositing, and sound design.
