Virtual Cinema

About the project:

This project, which was brought to life by Mirjam Vosmeer at the Interaction & Games Lab focused on the use of 360 video capturing technology to create Drama. The film is a transmedia extension of “Project Orpheus”, a new science fiction television series produced by the broadcasting giant AVROTROS. The team took the existing scripts from the television series and focused on key themes and elements to write and create a supporting 360 degree film for the series. The technology and VR production expertise was supplied by WE MAKE VR and crew from the television series itself aided in the production. One of the key things that seperates this VR Film from others is the use of Binaural Sound from AMP AMSTERDAM.  The VR experience is to be debuted alongside the launch of the television series in February 2016.


With the support of: AVROTROS
