Creating an explorative experience that ask viewers to become detectives themselves.

solution

Attention to detail was key. Creating areas of visual interest for you to visit within the Portal as well as changing the layout of the room slightly was necessary in order to move users throughout the Lens. These focal points ultimately dictated how we approached building as well as optimizing the Lens.

With 4 MB of data to work with and a room filled to the brim with knick knacks it became important early on to realize what was needed and how to optimize that. Photo-realism was also a key ask by Snapchat so in order to meet those needs creative solutions needed to be found.

Using the focal points determined earlier; models and textures were broken down to their bare essentials while still keeping in line with the image of the room that fans had seen on the show, always keeping in the mind the big picture.
