"Before climbing onto the project, Hollow’s producer Nathaniel Hansenand I had for a couple years asked ourselves a question, roughly:
is it even possible to produce interactive online cinematic content that maintains strong narrative and is as engaging as traditional forms of media?
Our assumption was that “interactive storytelling” on the web is like the wild west of non-fiction filmmaking, with very few rules, artists working to stake their claim, and unlimited virtual land up for grabs.
