Fire Escape: An Interactive VR Series

iNK Stories

Through the fog of the city peer into the private lives of eight diverse New Yorkers from your fire escape to discover suspicion and deception—all unfolding in real time. Set against a shadowy backdrop of contemporary gentrification where disenfranchised tenants become twisted in a string of dark mysteries and a murder. Audiences exercise their voyeuristic tendencies in this rich and innovative interactive cinematic narrative which harnesses the strengths of virtual reality—where audiences must reconcile their own role as an observer to reveal the truth.

When the night strikes eight o’clock in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, the suspenseful drama begins to unfold in real time— leading up to a suspenseful murder. Inspired by Hitchcock’s anxiety driven storytelling, from the moment Fire Escape’s action begins, audiences will have free range to seamlessly select apartments, spy close-up and hear the the intimate conversations of the residents—the dilemma becomes—who do you watch—and what does this tell you.
