The technology of Virtual Reality Film, or VR Film has evolved quickly and could change the medium of Film as we know it. It opens up new possibilities to tell stories and even explore them which could potentially take over the Cinematic Film in the future.
That is a question that not only Filmmakers like us ask ourselves but also one that cinema operators currently deal with. Although VR Film is rapidly growing and becoming more and more popular, the main reason why people go to the cinema is the company of other people. Even if there are technical options to compensate for that, it is unlikely that it will ever completely replace going to the cinema completely.
There is one thing you can not argue with when it comes to Virtual Reality: VR Film is capturing people’s imagination more than any other film medium and allows us to dive deep into the medium itself. The reason for that is that our senses only receive signals from the film and not the outer world anymore, making it „disappear“ completely. This phenomenon makes Virtual Reality one of a kind and interesting for many other mediums outside of traditional film. The advertising industry for example, could highly benefit from this new concept since they are always fond of being a step ahead of time when it comes to new technology and marketing strategies.
If you are interested to learn more about that or have a product that you would like to advertise with VR Film, feel free to contact us.
Some of you may have already realised that VR Film is bringing the Film Industry closer to the Game Industry, forming some sort of cross between the two. At the same time the Game Industry has been developing games that are more and more realistic for years now, trying to make them look like motion picture, but interactive. We think that within the coming years, the lines between these two industries will blur out even more and some day we might not be able to tell them apart anymore.
The Technology of VR is not even that much more complicated than that of 360 degree film: The main task is to film the entire surroundings with only one central camera. Then you can piece the footage together with special programmes so it can be viewed with VR headsets.
Virtual Reality is quite a experience! Ask anyone who has ever tried it. If you have an idea, product or company that could benefit from a unique presentation, VR Film is a good choice. Feel free to contact us if you want more information on the subject or have a request. We are happy to help.
