De plomb et de sang is a transmedia project inviting the reader in the Italy of 70s to discover the rise of radicalism leading to violence and numerous attacks. First read the novel paper album, then discover the universe in an interactive way. Each medium approaches the story from a different angle. After having followed the protagonists, witnessing their choices and their errors in the paper comic, the readers then take over and find themselves in their place in the digital version. The user is in a semi-open environment where he can get lost, wander and soak up the little story as well as the big.

What I did ?

As the art director and 3D designer, I worked with the creative team to increase the interest of navigation and interaction in an interactive comic book after a formal reading. I designed the visual interactive environment, crafted the Unity scene to look like Seif Eddine Nechi (the illustrator) work and directed the interactive production with developers.
