“There’s a thin and precarious line that separates one reality from another, and with Under the Skin we wanted to cross this line and overlap these realities to show to audiences that the bridges in between are wider than its gaps.”

João Inada, Author, to Docubase

Under the Skin is a first-person, 6 DoF (degrees of freedom), interactive VR documentary about state-promoted violence inside the favelas — slums — of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and its effects on the community of residents.

The project combines interactive scenarios built within Unity using photogrammetry and 3D modelling, volumetric capture technology to recreate characters, real TV and social media audiovisual assets, and 360° documentaries. It seeks to present an experience that blends archival and traditional documentary assets with a gamified real-time interactive experience, enhancing the user’s notion of presence within a non-fiction narrative and giving them more agency within the story.
