The Dilemma of Positional tracking in Cinematic VR films.

The scene above is from the upcoming VR film “Dirrogate:DeepVR”. A pseudo-script excerpt might read somewhat like this:

Ext. Dan’s Apt, Terrace, Night.

(ambiance: city sounds, a police siren wails in the distance)

We look at Maya through Dan’s perspective, sitting on one of the sun loungers on the terrace.

Maya  (stifling a yawn, stands up)

Root VR, Deep VR and your career in Virtual Reality filmmaking

Shooting in VR on Digital Sets:

For the past 4 days we’ve been shooting the opening scene of ‘Dirrogate:DeepVR’ at Hazelwood Terrace. The reason the scene’s taking so long is not because Maya is a bad actor, no, in fact she’s been really co-operative, going through multiple wardrobe changes, hair styles and contact lenses without fuss. Learning the ropes of filming on Digital sets in Virtual Reality, and discovering a new language of storytelling along the way, is the reason.

We’ll get to some of the grammar and vocabulary soon; Deep VR and Root VR is the title of this article, after all. Let’s talk a bit more about [...]

Breaking the fourth wall in Cinematic VR

“Did you think I’d forgotten you? Perhaps you hoped I had….Welcome back”

That’s how Frank Underwood, a.k.a Kevin Spacey, ends the first episode of Season 2 of House of Cards and there’s an actual sigh of relief from audiences! You see, F.U. has been talking to you (me) ever since Season 1 of this hit ‘made for Netflix’ series, and we somewhat feel left out when the entire episode goes by, with him ignoring us. And this… is still a regular TV show.

Imagine how devastating it would be, if this were a made-for-NetflixVR show. Yes, Netflix VR is a thing! We (I) would certainly take it personally if he sidelined [...]

Saudade in Virtual Reality

You look at the window, and your eyes track a rivulet of rain water making its way down the window pane. Outside, the sky is overcast and the rumble of thunder, distant yet distinct, triggers neurons to fire in the recesses of your brain.

You sit on your couch… alone, your hand reflexively caresses the cup of hot chocolate, the warmth of the cup sending another trigger, activating memories that are slowly fading…

Memories of how the two of you used to sit at home on days like these, the scent of her hair mingling with the scent of the wet earth outside, making you take a deep breath. Yet, she is not here and this is not the same window or the same [...]
