Participatory Chinatown is a 3-D immersive game designed to be part of the master planning process for Boston's Chinatown. Players assume the role of one of 15 virtual residents and work to complete their assigned quest - finding a job, housing, or place to socialize.
Matthew Hashiguchi and I were asked to create this short doc for a presentation to Boston's City Council and for the White House. I shot with an EX1/Letus Extreme and a Zeiss 85mm f1.4, and Matthew was shooting on a Cavision rig with a 7D, Canon 50mm 1.8, 70-200mm 2.8, and a 20-55mm 2.8.
The development was funded by a grant from the MacArthur Foundation.
