Cinematic VR and Instant Returns on Investment, Part II

(Note: Videos are mildly NSFW. Those without VR headsets can choose the anaglyph option and use red-cyan glasses)

“The proof is in the pudding,” to quote a more palatable one, than the overused; “Content is King”.

After an earlier article I’d written: “Insta-ROI and Cinematic VR,” I got a few emails from producers asking to explain more. One of them has accepted there’s no free lunch, and so I’ve scored a consultation gig.

However, it’s nice to have free pudding, so have a look at the video above – A test scene from the planned “Dirrogate:DeepVR” film and then, see a re-framed [...]

360 Video is not ‘Cinematic VR’​…and Here’s why.

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 [...]
