Description

This immersive journalism virtual reality piece tells the story of the day teenager Travyon Martin was shot and killed by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman. DARK NIGHT was produced exclusively from real recordings of 911 calls, witness trial testimony and architectural drawings that provide the exact layout of both interiors and exteriors of the condo complex. By anchoring the piece in accurate and unassailable elements, the user becomes transported inside a reliable, albeit virtual, version of the story as an eyewitness. Moreover, DARK NIGHT breaks new ground on multiple levels, including through audio carefully cleaned by forensic specialists Sourcesound and Primeau Productions, with the latter asserting that the reconstructed audio indicates George Zimmerman cocked his gun just before he gave chase.
