The team at Causa Creations is proud to present “Songs of Travel” – an interactive experience that explores themes of migration as well as the generational effects of living outside one’s home country.
Designed for mobile devices, the sprawling motion comic depicts the real-life stories of 5 individuals through the intermixing of recorded interviews, illustrated comic art, and interactive features. The project is currently in development and is planned for release in 2024.
Brian and Lisley will be sharing their insights into the making of the interactive app by spotlighting the visual development and sequential storytelling, revealing their process from storyboard to final implementation.
The ongoing project is made in conjunction with classical music festivals throughout northern Europe. Funded by Creative Europe. the project also features the music of artists from throughout the continent and seeks educate students in the themes of migration and social inclusion.
