Filmmaker and Producer, Atlas V
LOS ANGELES AND Athens
Alethea works at the intersection of innovation and traditional filmmaking in the burgeoning industry of VR/AR. With a focus on human rights and documentary storytelling, Alethea is passionate about content that connects cultures and finds ways to generate empathy through new technology. In addition to her work in VR, Alethea is an award-winning filmmaker who has worked extensively in Europe, Africa, Central America, and the US.
She produced the Sundance 2016 and Tribeca 2016 official selection Perspective: Chapter 2; The Misdemeanor, widely considered one of the best examples of narrative storytelling in VR. She also produced with Google Matpat's Game Lab, the first-ever series in 360 for YouTubeRED (YouTube's premium platform).
Alethea was part of the producing teams of Spheres, a three-part series that invites viewers to explore the depth of space in VR. Co-produced with Darren Aronofsky and supported by Oculus and Intel, Spheres made history at the Sundance Film Festival 2018 as the first-ever VR-project to be acquired in a seven-figure deal by a private investor.
Most recently, she co-produced Vestige, a creative nonfiction experience that uses multi-narrative and volumetric capture to journey through the mind of Lisa as she remembers her lost love, Erik. Fragments of memories of their life together appear inside a void and, over time, become entangled with a haunting vision, culminating in the shocking moment of Erik's death.
She will bring Vestige to the House, as part of our opening evening, “Major Desires, Minor Keys.”
