The Silent Truth

My first ambitious writing project as Lead Writer at unrd, written in collaboration with Creative Director Adam Lowe.

‘The Silent Truth’ followed a death row inmate’s struggle to prove their innocence before time runs out, using a smuggled mobile phone to do so.

In telling a truly immersive story, we sought inspiration from real world cases, and spoke to people within the US justice system for guidance in authenticity and sensitivity on the subject matter. We further wanted to create a sense of place for the story, and built the world out with ARG elements including news articles, video interviews, and even an entire true crime podcast.

Unrd is an app that takes you inside the phone of the protagonist of the story. From horror, to romance, crime, and more, you receive video calls, phone calls, text messages, social media posts, and more, that immerse you into the world of the story.
