Condition One, a start up developer dedicated to make virtual reality (VR) films for the Oculus Rift VR headset, has revealed the first trailer for Zero Point, an upcoming Oculus-compatible piece. Zero Point is a 3D film supporting 360-degrees of footage, allowing audiences to look all around at their surroundings while it plays out.
The trailer, currently only available through Condition One’s website, gives viewers a taste of the experience. Using mouse movements its possible to get a full view of an entire surrounding area. Locations include a beach setting, the military training outfit at Camp Pendleton, and even the halls of the Electronics Entertainment Expo (E3) in LA. The piece is created and directed by Danfung Dennis, who won an Academy Award for his 2012 documentary Hell and Back Again.
“With ‘Zero Point,’ we wanted to showcase the profound importance of Virtual Reality by placing viewers in unique scenarios that they otherwise might not find themselves in,” Dennis said.
While it’s not known when Zero Point will release to consumers, Condition One has promised that it will be available for Oculus Rift developer kit owners later in the year. VRFocus will bring you the latest on the project as it happens.
