Revised Script

I’ve been spending the last few days working on the script and planning ahead on building the model in the coming week. So far, I’ve managed to find a good solution to the introduction with a good balance between R1 and R2. Im still working on this but will update it once i finish it later on tonight.

This is Dan

R1

Dan’s room is a studio flat in a housing development built some years ago, in the newer part of town. He moved in just as it opened, along with 50 other neighbours. Like Dan, they were drawn by its close proximity to the servers of a nearby data facility and the freshly laid fibre optic cables in the area. The rent is high but an average internet speed of 491.78 MB/s was good enough reason to make a compromise over a bigger, cheaper place in the Old Town.

R1

As a software programmer, he works from home and receives a decent salary for the freelance work he does for tech companies all over the world. With little reason to leave his room, he orders everything from food to clothes and socialises with his friends online. For fun, he watches his large collection of movies and TV shows or plays countless hours of games, joining millions of others on open-world mass multiplayer games. “I am a gamer not because I don’t have a life but because I choose to have many” Dan states proudly on his Facebook page.

He would play countless hours of games, sometimes even late into the night, even into the morning until a new day would start again.

R2

Dan made sure that in the confines of his small studio flat, he would build the ultimate setup: a powerful gaming rig with a 12 core CPU, Dual nVidia 1080 GTX graphics card, 4 Ultrasharp 6k monitors, an Xbox console and a HTC Vive Headset with sensitive haptic gloves. With these, Dan has the ability to escape into an infinite collection of virtual worlds, landscapes and places.

R2

In this world, Dan is free. The options are simply endless where the ability to jump from world to world provides for often breath-taking and life-changing experiences to take place. Here he can be anyone and he can do anything, having everything the way he wants it to be.

R1

There, he escapes the generic buildings and spaces that been so rapidly and ruthlessly built over the last few years: “Everything looks the same. Buildings tend to repeat themselves and I’m just tired of them,” he complains.

R2

While the interiors we inhabit have evolved to separate and disconnect us from one another, the space of the game and its qualities have enabled the many like Dan to connect once more in an interior that we can inhabit and consume with endless possibilities. It is no surprise that millions of people immerse themselves here as it presents a much more desirable world than the one we currently occupy.

R1

Dan’s neighbours are similar to him, they are amongst the many who spend their lives in this reclusive manner, compartmentalised into a series of generic rooms in cities all over the world. Like Dan, many have found themselves spending much more time inside while being completely isolated from one another.

Like Dan, many have found themselves immersed in the world of Delta, a vast and infinite world unlike any other, different from ours yet strangely familiar. Here fantasies become reality and anything is simply possible.

R2

As a growing network of worlds and rooms, Delta is always changing and reconfiguring itself, allowing for a new experience to take place each time. Composed of vast structure of interiors, Delta’s world is the result of an infinite amount of possibilities.

R1

In the real world, life has become much less accessible – walls and doors line where can go and where can’t go, leaving many with little choice but to live and use their designated rooms and spaces. For the many that have found themselves here…

to be continued.
