A few days ago VRFocus reported on immersive content studio Here Be Dragons’ next virtual reality (VR) project, a miniseries called Dispatch. Making its debut at the recent Venice Film Festival, the studio’s now released the trailer shown at the event.
The four-part series puts viewers in the shoes of a police dispatcher, dealing with all manner of emergency calls from the general public. As the trailer showcases, Dispatch has a highly stylised design overlaid with voice calls. The series revolves around a protagonist called Ted, who finds that he is the only one able to help a victim, no longer sheltered by the distance of a voice down a phone line.
As yet Here Be Dragons hasn’t confirmed which VR head-mounted displays (HMDs) Dispatch will be released on. As previous five-part series The Possible was available through the Within app the studio may go down the same route, with the app supporting iOS and Android using Google Cardboard, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, and PlayStation VR
VRFocus will continue its coverage of Here Be Dragons, reporting back with its latest projects.
