The time has come for me to finally dedicate a long segment to The Key. Celine Tricart’s interactive VR film has been snatching one award after the other and certainly revolves around a current topic. I had the opportunity to watch The Key already and the even absolute pleasure to chat with the director.
The Venice Film Festival could not go amiss without the Magic Leap One making an appearance this year. A good thing, then, as the new augmented reality glasses were featured in two interesting projects to boot—one of which is These Sleepless Nights, a documentation in AR and director Gabo Arora’s latest work.
At this year’s Tribeca Film Festival in New York City, I had the opportunity to dive into a wealth of different virtual reality experiences. And without a doubt, Wolves in the Walls was one of my favorites of the show. The VR animated film boasts such involved dramaturgy that I felt compelled to dedicate three whole articles to the subject. While the first focuses on interactivity in general, this second one will take a closer look at specific interactions. In it, we will discover the crucial role immersive theater plays in the making of this masterpiece.
