They are cofounded by Record Producer and Songwriter, Alex Salibian (Harry Styles, Young the Giant, etc.), and Computer Graphics Supervisor, Tamir Diab (Avatar, Iron Man 3, etc.). They are working in Unreal 5 and are creating narrative-driven experirences that tell the story of a song from the artist's perspective. They are incorporating interactive game play elements to drive direct-to-fan engagement in new ways. You can view the teaser here of what it will be like.
