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.
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.
