Keir Dullea encounters a mysterious object, in a scenario reminiscent of the penultimate scene from Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey that he appeared in over forty years ago.

Everything in this 2001 homage is absolutely perfect except Keir's shoes. They look comfortable. That's all wrong. Still, I think even the toughest Kubrick fan will approve, and even squeee a little.

This spec teaser was developed over a two year period on a shoestring budget. Live action was filmed multi-camera, against greenscreen atop a backlit plexi floor. Mr. Dullea was then integrated into an entirely digitally created CG set rendered at 1080HD.

The Immersive Cocoon is a future concept study by Tino Schaedler with design collective NAU; an idea to push the envelope and provoke a new conception and evolution of computer interaction.
