Jaunt VR is one of the most productive content creation company’s working in virtual reality (AR) at present, having recently released experience such as Free the Night and Through You, whilst winning an Emmy for its documentary, Collisions. Today, the studio has announced a new partnership with immersive streaming app Hulu VR, to bring a range of titles to the service.
Hulu VR will be getting a total of seven experiences from Jaunt, all of which will be exclusive. Currently only two have been revealed as part of the deal, five-part scripted VR series INVISIBLE, as well as two episodes from the action and adventure series Home Turf.
INVISIBLE is a supernatural drama series following a mysterious American family, the Ashlands, whose reach extends into the largest corporations and governments across the world. Although they control a large portion of the world’s economy they exist in relative ambiguity. They move without being seen and somehow without being known. That’s because select family members have the power to make themselves invisible.
INVISIBLE was created by a partnership between Condé Nast Entertainment (CNÉ), Jaunt, Samsung Electronics America, Inc., and the 30 Ninjas team of Director Doug Liman (Bourne Identity, Edge of Tomorrow) and Producer Julina Tatlock, along with Oscar-nominated Screenwriter Melisa Wallack (Dallas Buyers Club).
The Home Turf series takes users on iconic adventures all over the world including Iceland and Utah. In addition to the beautiful landscapes on offer, the series follows famous figures including world-renowned slackliner Andy Lewis.
The new deal gives consumers access to a larger library of high-quality and award-winning immersive content across all major devices where the Hulu VR app can be streamed, which includes Google Daydream, PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR and Windows Mixed Reality headsets.
Additionally, Hulu subscribers can also stream Hulu’s entire library of 2D content, including current season content, past seasons of hit shows, movies and Hulu Originals, in immersive 3D environments.
VRFocus will continue its coverage of Hulu VR and Jaunt, reporting back with any further updates.
