Feedback on the concept explored by the sketch model

Client 1:

The infinity mirror gag is a good one and I think the effect can be done as desired. The testing you did is adequate for the stage and I like the completed effect.

Material choice is fine for prototype but will not hold up in a commercial setting.

Reviewer 2:

The sketch model is great! I'm a little confused as to what questions you wanted to be answered about the sketch model other than just whether or not you could actually build this.

Reviewer 3:

As I mentioned above, I think that the idea of helping Hatshepsut to the afterlife isn't super intuitive, and I worry that guests would be more familiar with the idea of grave robbers releasing a curse. If you continue with the current storyboard, though, the infinity mirror is an appealing-looking trick.

Reviewer 4:

I think the concepts explored by your sketch model are key to your story. Good job.

Reviewer 5:

This was pretty cool! I thought it was well done and the video did a good job capturing the cascading light effects. Good idea to test before submitting. It is a little bit difficult to interpret the figure as the spirit. Perhaps making it brighter or having a little more detail would help. For a sketch model though, excellent! Also, nice detailing on the crypt exterior. Perhaps consider adding physical texture to further give the look/feel of stone.

Feedback on the execution of the sketch model

Client 1:

The final product shows the infinity mirror effect which is nice. It seems as if you struggled with the construction process. I think the rope and wire was a poor choice. Maybe even a dark silhouette laser cut from acrylic would give you a better more polished look? I like the look of your spray painted foam, but I just won't hold up long term.

The execution is great! Thanks for showing how you made it and everything!

Reviewer 3:

Looks really great! The explanation was clear and thorough, and I liked the way in which lighting choices were informed by some preliminary user testing. The video was a helpful way to get a feel for the model. One note, I know this was a smaller scale model, but you mention anticipating that the final thing will be around six feet long. You don't mention height, but finding a height that makes touching the walls intuitive, while still allowing guests to see into the infinity mirror will be a tricky balance.

Reviewer 4:

You did a really good job with the execution of your works-like aspect of your sketch model. The LEDs look cool and make the portal effect come to life. The only thing I would suggest is that you consider fog or haze to make it more immersive for the user, but I am not sure how often you'd have to refill a fog/haze machine. It might be worth looking into! You also did a really good job with your looks-like and it looks like you put a lot of effort! The only comment I have on this is that Egyptian coffins usually have a lot of writing and symbols around them, so it would be nice to have those kinds of decorations on a looks-like coffin for next time if your team decides to pursue this.

Reviewer 5:

Lots of detail on fabrication. Clever / simple design. I think this should scale easily to the full model.
