for 15 days, we drove from portland to portland creating daily NARRATIVE light installations. It was incredible.

On May 5th, 2015, we had an idea.
On May 13th, we launched a Kickstarter.
On May 31st, just 19 days later, our sucessfully funded campaign ended.
On June 1st, we hit the road

The goal of the project was to rapidly create compelling work, and augment our found environment, while reflecting on narrative themes surrounding adventuregrowing up, and brotherhood.

Each day that follows built on the previous, into an overarching, constantly unfolding story, that was shared live with our Kickstarter backers on multiple platforms.

We've released all of the videos and are rolling out detailed process posts with behind the scenes, audio logs, concept sketches & storyboards. There's more content than we could possible have shared along the way, so subscribe for updates and we'll share news with you first.


We made some things inspired by our adventure.
