Finally, I can write about love – yes, love. My love for the Venice Film Festival and its fantastic VR section is boundless. This year, however, love plays a wholly different role… sit back, as today, we’ll be talking about Loveseat.
One of the most fascinating experiences I have ever made in VR, The Collider is neither a VR film, nor a VR game, or a play, or VR meditation… Calling it an installation or even self-experience feels closer to home. The idea behind it appears equally simple as it is genius: in The Collider, two people crash into each other.
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.
