We are Stormjar, an immersive experience company founded in Autumn 2021 by Creative Producer Sophie Shaw, a live immersive experience specialist and Creative Director James Wheale, an innovation and experience design specialist. We are working in both digital and live entertainment exploring the future of the haunted house.
We have spent the past six months in research and development with Arts Council England, Bristol + Bath Creative R+D and Audience of the Future on starting a new business in the experiential sector and immersive horror. We will be sharing our learnings, insights and tools we’ve discovered along the way and how they will be informing our first experience. So hold onto the safety bar and keep your hands and feet inside the ride at all times as we delve into immersive psychological horror experiences.
