Augmented reality’s growth brings a need for developed experiences, especially those centered around storytelling. However, as a new medium, the language and approaches for designing and developing said content are still being established. This work explores and proposes design and technical production techniques to produce an augmented reality narrative, adding to the foundation- examining what is necessary, effective, and practical. The methods described will be presented through the story of the 79 AD eruption of Mt. Vesuvius as witnessed from Pliny the Younger. The historical event of the eruption coupled with augmented reality showcases the power of storytelling in the medium and its ability to produce new perspectives.
