- 14 february 2014
To help promote the popular TV series “Bates Motel,” which is a re-imagining and prequel to the movie Psycho, TVGla has added an interactive element to the show’s website. You can use your phone’s flashlight app to navigate the dark corners of the motel featured in the series, which uses actual footage to create a convincing experience.
Apart from the footage from the set, the agency also made sure that the site had a similar theme and aesthetic when compared to that of the show. The experience uses HTML5 websockets to pair your phone with the site, after which it becomes a controller to let you uncover your own mysteries within the creepy motel room.
