Virtual reality (VR) technology represents incredible new potential for telling stories. For the first time, creators can put their audiences, be they gamers or simple viewers, into an experience like never before. There are an amazing set of new opportunities to explore with the tech across videogames, movies and more. That’s exactly what Unreal Engine 4 creator Epic Games is focusing on with the third entry in its weekly ‘Sense of Presence’ VR documentary series, which has launched today.
This 5 minute video features clips of upcoming VR titles such as Three One Zero’s Adrift, while also hearing from members of the development team (in this case Adam Orth). Also new to the series is Jeff Brown, the Director of Photography at Oculus VR’s own filmmaking division, Oculus Story Studio, with clips of its upcoming animated feature, Henry, also shown.
We also once again hear from Oculus VR founder Palmer Luckey, Epic Games CTO Kim Libreri and Ray Davis and others as well as catch glimpses of Kite & Lightning’s GE Subsea VR Experience, nDreams The Assembly, The Astronauts’ The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, KOOLA’s Visualization software.
VRFocus will continue to follow Epic Games’ work in VR closely, reporting back with the latest updates from the developer.
