Virtual Reality has recently emerged as a new medium for storytelling, and filmmakers around the world have been embracing and experimenting with it. Experience VR projects over cocktails and snacks and join us for a discussion focusing on some of the most interesting trends in VR storytelling.
Tzina: A poetic, interactive VR documentary that brings us into the now-demolished Dizengoff Square in Tel Aviv. There, the park’s regulars muse on their experiences of love and loss. Created by Shirin Anlen and Or Fleisher.
Myth: An interactive VR short film featuring the music of Livyatanim. The film is created as a way to interact and build upon the music, putting the listener inside our conceived reality on a path that is as random as it is designed and directed. Myth makes use of the song “Can I Peacefully Love” and puts the user in control of his viewing perspective, an element that creates a personal, deep and surreal experience. Created by Or Fleisher and Aviv Meshulam.
Sono: An interactive live music performance, performed by Livyatanim and captured as an immersive experience both visually and sonically. The “venue” in which the band plays is a dark crater located in a surreal outer-space environment, surrounded by cosmic events and astronomical phenomenons. Sono features three songs, each of them played by the band as the surrounding world changes around them. The music, like the visuals, is binaural, allowing the user to move around and hear what they would hear if they were surrounded by the band. Created by Or Fleisher.
The Museum of Stolen Art: A virtual space for art that has been stolen, looted, lost to greed, or lost to conflict. Created by Ziv Schneider.
The Holy City: The Holy City is an innovative and interactive VR experience that transports the user to the world’s spiritual epicenter, creating a new form of interactive documentary that draws on traditional and modern VR game mechanics to encourage the user to participate and explore their environment. It will grant the viewer exclusive access to the holiest sites throughout Jerusalem, guided by three key religious protagonists that represent perspectives from Judaism, Islam, and Christianity. Created by Nimrod Shanit Blimey and Timur Musabay.+ More... - Less...
