Last Whispers

Oversaw immersive video production

At an unprecedented speed, faster than the extinction of most endangered species, we are losing our linguistic diversity—and the very means by which we know ourselves. Last Whispers is an immersive oratorio, an invocation of the languages that have gone extinct and an incantation of those that are endangered.



Last Whispers was created in collaboration with

The Endangered Languages Documentation Programme and
The SOAS World Languages Institute, SOAS, University of London

It is co-presented by
The Atlas of the World’s Languages in Danger, UNESCO


SHORTER CLIPS FOR AJ+ WEB VR PORTAL AND FACEBOOK / YOUTUBE PAGE

For AJ+ we split up the four subjects' stories into short 360 pieces that were posted on Facebook 360 and optimized by AJ+ with larger motion graphics text for mobile viewing.

I project-managed the creation of a web VR interactive for AJ+ that hosted the 360 videos and allowed for the 16 top-rated comments that were made on the Facebook 360 videos to be projected inside of the 360 "cave" alongside the portraits of the subjects.
