The Missy Burton Experience + A/R

About the collaboration

While writing the “Dynasty” story, it was essential to me that the story’s focus would be on triumph as opposed to tragedy. This story is about how each generation prioritized restoring its legacy despite its encounter with tragedy. I felt each woman needed to tell her own story in her voice. The Saana.io app was the perfect tool to enable this perception and elevate the storytelling from the subject’s point of view using A/R technology.
