Congratulations to ITP Alumni Yasmin Elayat and Andrew Schneider for their wins at the 2021 Tribeca Film Festival.
Yasmin Elayat won the Tribeca Jury Award for The Changing Same: Episode 1, an immersive virtual reality experience where the participant travels through time and space to witness the connected historical experiences of racial injustice in America.
Andrew Schneider won the creative non-fiction category for Current, an immersive sound experience in Lower Manhattan. At specific times of day, participants are guided on a walk using their mobile devices and headphones. Using binaural sound design and on-location recordings, Current weaves an observed and imagined narrative of historical and anecdotal stories on themes of water, time, destruction, and construction.
