The Undead Brought to Life

The invited combines an exquisite fine art pop-up book with engrossing augmented reality animations to bring the story of Dracula to life as if by magic.

Set in a dark, secret location, a physical book and a tablet dressed as a ‘spirit detector’ summon 1-5 audience members, through a captivating 20-minute experience where each page turn reveals a new exquisite paper world and a new set of haunting animations to those who are invited to become part of Dracula’s reincarnation.
