Oculus VR has been recently bolstering its line-up of technology and content partners, like the recent acquisition of Pebbles Interactive and now revealing a new partnership with Montreal based company, Felix & Paul Studios.
Felix & Paul Studios, whose previous projects include Jurassic World: Apatosaurus, Reese Witherspoon movie Wild and Samsung Gear VR Introduction to VR, have just signed at multi-project, multi year deal with Oculus VR to produce virtual reality (VR) experiences tied to blockbuster movies and original content for the company according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The studio, founded by filmmakers Felix Lajeunesse and Paul Raphael will use its own propriety VR system, which uses the company’s own 360 degree camera, sound capture and end-to-end VR postproduction software suite. Lajeunesse said of the collaboration: “Each project born out of our partnership with Oculus will be an occasion to explore VR’s unprecedented potential to immerse viewers in human-driven experiences in the fields of fiction and non-fiction storytelling as well as music and the performing arts.”
The duo see the possible potential in VR that only a few other film makers see and are currently working on a VR series called Nomads, based around the Maasai tribe of Kenya and the Bajau people in Borneo. Allowing users of both the Gear VR and Oculus Rift to experience in VR the lives of these African tribes.
VRFocus will continue to follow the latest announcements from Felix & Paul Studios and their work in VR.
