MY NAME IS NYLA
Writer, director and producer of film and interactive content. Lover of dogs that are not my own. Hater of William H Macy (sorry, not sorry). I started Mixtape VR with just a backpack full of VR headsets and a passion that started with my first Toronto Meet-up and hasn't quit.
Here at Mixtape VR we aim to tell stories and build perspective. Our focus is creating narrative experiences in Virtual and Augmented Realities, but I’m terrible at maintaining focus, and just directed a 2D feature called Slash/Back. It is a sci-fi, horror, coming-of-age movie about a group of girls that chase down aliens and battle them. So, Much. Fun.
Up next we’ve got an interactive gallery exhibit in partnership with the Winnipeg Art Gallery and the Glenn Gould Foundation. Expected showing: Late 2020.
