This was a part of a Hyper Island project called Exploring Technology. The task was to work with the Palm Top Theater (a device that turns your iPhone into a multi-layer screen) and design a visual experience around it. My passion for old school video games from the 80's and 90's led me to create an intro/trailer to a fictional video game I call "The Purple Phantom".
The reason the screen is split into three sections on top of each other is because that is how the Palm Top Theater device splits videos into 3-dimensional experiences. In other words, the top layer is the foreground and the two nether layers act as backgrounds. I intended to compile these layers into a conventional video, but I've sadly lost my source files since then. Hope you enjoy it regardless!
