The Party

Guardian Media Group

 

No Ghost was approached to work with The Guardian on The Party, an immersive 360 VR experience for The Guardian’s VR platform.

 

The piece aims to portray the difficulties that people on the autistic spectrum can encounter in everyday life, in this case a surprise party. Putting the viewer in the shoes of autistic teenager Layla, The Party highlights the various symptoms of Autism and sensory overload.

Visual Effects

 

No Ghost created the various effects that portray the visual aspects of sensory overload. We used expert research and first hand accounts from autistic people to inform the visuals that were created. This project demanded a sensitive approach as we needed to be careful not to go too far and misrepresent the experiences of autism.

 
 

Reception

 

Feedback from the autistic community has been amazing and we’re very pleased to have been able to help communicate a sensitive subject in such a unique and engaging way.
