EXZEB and UNIT9 Launch ‘Meet The Family’ VR Film

Production studio EXZEB supported by UNIT9, who created survival experience Storm for the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD), has launched a new virtual reality (VR) film, Meet The Family.

Written and directed by EXZEB Co-founder and Artistic Director,? Eric Nyira, Meet The Family, is a VR film journey into the lives and minds of a creepy, cryptic virtual family. Created using binaural sound and real time dynamic lighting to explore a series of complex environments and 3 distinct characters that reside within them, Meet The Family looks to evoke the true power behind the most basic of human emotions – pleasure, joy, wonder, fear, stress and rejection.

“I am deeply intrigued by the science of human behavior and wanted to find a way to trigger people’s emotions and reactions within an immersive and exploratory virtual atmosphere,” explains Nyira in a statement. “VR has this unparalleled ability to captivate 100% of a user’s attention, and when properly manipulated, can speak directly to the primal brain unlike any other tech platform out there. This film was a true exercise in seeing just how far we could take that.”

A trailer for the film can be seen below, and the entire film can be downloaded here. The VR film experience supports the Oculus Rift DK2 unit, which has now officially sold out.
