The Name Still Spoken
An Immersive Narrative Investigation of 360 Filming
The Name Still Spoken (TNSS) is part of a series of ongoing investigations by StoryLab into the creative, ethical and socio-economic application of immersive media. It takes impetus from Terry Pratchett’s Going Postal (2004) and aims to convey the spatial narrative of the consecrated grounds of an urban cemetery, through the construction of a 360 film via entry-level technology, software and distribution platforms. Established in 1848, this Cambridge cemetery embodies a battle between nature, wildlife and anthropological conservation, home to worn down gravestones with fading names. Whilst testing the boundaries of accessible (and affordable) 360 filming and distribution, the TNSS project asks if it is possible to keep the living memory of those named on the gravestones alive through a 360 sonically driven immersive experience.
