Doors We Open is an interactive film that explores the relationship of an estranged father and daughter struggling to connect over shared trauma.The screen-based experience alternates between live action film and 3D gameplay to observe their dynamic and examine what they each hold beneath the surface.

The live action scenes depict reality, centering around the present relationship between father and daughter and the cultural nuances of conversation, while the virtual sequences explore the subconscious mind and glimpses of the memories of our characters. Together, the dichotomy of mediums become a metaphor for how we present ourselves to family versus how we suppress our internal reflections.
