There is some worry as to whether or not virtual reality (VR) will be as successful in the form of television series over movies, as there have been many films created for VR already but not many series. In an effort to make VR resonate more with television rather than film, Within has dedicated itself to creating five-part series called The Possible.
The Possible aims to “takes viewers on a fast?paced, immersive, 360-degree journey into the world of scientific and technological breakthroughs” in the words of Chris Milk, CEO of Within (formerly known as Vrse). What each of the episodes will do is put a spotlight on the ups and downs of each of the inventors all the way up until they have made their discoveries.
One of the main things to note is who has gotten on board with Within in order to create this VR television series. An award-winning filmmaker was enlisted, and that was David Gelb, standing as director for The Possible and who has also created Jiro Dreams of Sushi and The Chef’s Table. As well as Gelb, June Cohen, former Head of Media at TED, was brought on to produce the series.
Milk went on to say: “Working with David Gelb and other top filmmakers to develop an original VR series allows us to give viewers an inside look at the perseverance behind each inventor, and impact these technologies have on the world. And what I love the most about David’s work, he lets the artists, scientists and creators tell their own story. There is no host.”
The series is set to come out in the next few months, so stick with VRFocus for the latest from Within, as well as all the news, updates, and features in the world of VR.
