Vivid Foundry is a Toronto interactive digital media studio that creates original, artistic stories, founded by Tanya Kan. We use the power of interactivity to humanize social concerns and empower civic stories, and foster socially engaging conversations.
In March 2013, Tanya Kan had just completed her life-changing work position introducing a VFX studio to a game engine pipeline, and all of her travel experiences and friendships re-energized her passion for creative writing. Her undergrad degree in Political Science and Cinema Studies further helped her hone her voice in shaping experiential stories. Since then, she has taken on work in interactive media, including store displays, parks, and product demonstrations, and interactive real estate experiences using Unreal Engine. Over time, she developed prototypes for games that is driven by narrative exposition as the key gameplay experience. Her clients include: VFX Nova, Autodesk, The Remington Centre, Le Chateau, OCAD University, and Matt Makes Games.Current development
