artworxLA students from the Hollywood Media Arts Academy visited Mirada studios, the production powerhouse behind Pan's Labyrinth, Pacific Rim and Cornelia Funke's Mirrorworld interactive apps. The students screened 7 films they made in during Nicole Emmons' Teaching Residency over the Summer of 2013.
Mirada is a convergence of perspectives focused on advancing the art and science of storytelling. We built our studio as a perpetual idea machine, a story engine, to engage broader audiences in better ways — and the highest level of this engagement comes from pioneering hybrid narrative experiences. Sometimes the experience illuminates the inherent story values of a brand. Sometimes it leads audiences to uncharted places. Sometimes it's just an incredible idea that needs to be realized because it just does.
We seek out these imagination-adrenaline rushes because they are the purest expressions of our core principles: mutual inspiration; inventing immersive story worlds; synthesizing archetypal oral tradition with modern technique; forcing arguments; cross-pollinating epiphanies, and fearlessly pursuing the horizon.
