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.”
