VR, the hottest trending technology employs a headset which offers us to get totally immersed into the world with the characters depicted in the movie, attracting huge investments by giants like Facebook and Google. But the story weakens to bind in mainstream due the inefficiency of finding the appealing content. Companies like VRC are among those presenting the content in a fascinating way marking them as a leader in the new entertainment format.
VRC is best known for helping make “The Martian” virtual-reality experience, based on the 2015 Matt Damon movie, and for collaborating on another family-oriented VR project with Steven Spielberg.
The chief creative officer of VRC, Robert Stromberg, said in an interview in March about the making of the short: “I wanted to bring those same elements that we enjoy in cinema but experience it in a new way – immersing with the characters rather than seeing them through a window”. Stromberg is a two-time Oscar winner for working on “Avatar” and Maleficent, also involved “Guardians of the Galaxy” screenwriter Nicole Perlman and Skywalker Sound.
