Catatonic is an immersive VR horror film from the totally sane minds of Guy Shelmerdine and Edward Robles. Originally released in 2015, this belter of an experience starts by strapping in to a custom rumble-pack equipped wheelchair and continues with sensorial stimulation as you're ushered through a psychiatric hospital. Given the proximity to Halloween 2020, I thought it would be fun to revisit my contribution to the project and concept/ execute an entirely new batch of collateral and digital experiences. It was... scary fun. I'm sorry.

Character editions / playing around with these scary ass character portraits, leaning into the grit of the film.

Graphic editions / pairing experience imagery with a vibrating optical effect to unsettle a passerby

The refreshed digital experience is clean, contemporary, and painfully sterile—taking inspiration from St. Luke Medical Center in Pasadena, where the film was shot.

When rolling over hyperlinks/ hot links you'll get an animation/ load effect that mirrors the new title treatment
