Glimpse is an animated virtual reality experience about a panda called Herbie. Herbie is a talented illustrator holed up in his studio after a painful break up with his girlfriend of four years, a pretty deer called Rice, an aspiring musician.
We experience the memories of their relationship through Herbie’s eyes and illustrations, venturing into the depths of his mind, as he recalls everything from the bitter end, to the heights of deep love to the sweet but awkward beginnings.
Glimpse is a sometimes sad, sometimes funny journey that brings us on an incredible, emotive trip right into the heart of a relationship
Glimpse is an embodied experience. We have a full body, a panda body, that we can see if we look down.
We also have black furry arms and hands. They work.
We can move them in front of our face or use them to interact with things in our vicinity.
We witness happy and bitter memories that materialise from Herbie's sketchbooks...
These are concept sketches for some of those scenes.
