Pippa’s Pan 盼 is shocked and excited to announce we are the third place winners of the AT&T VR/AR Challenge!
When we first found out about the AT&T VR/AR Challenge our team had only begun production on just building the VR environment. We submitted what little we had without expecting a response and were shocked to hear AT&T announce us as a top five finalist out of 67 professional teams.
When we arrived at the AT&T Developer’s Summit to showcase our abridged demo (a sneak peak of the full film coming out in April), we quickly realized we were by far the youngest team. We were also the only film/storytelling project.
Over the course of 2 days, we demoed Pippa’s Pan 盼 to almost 300 people. Our team didn’t sit, eat, or go to the bathroom for almost 8 hours each day as we continuously showcased our project. It was the most exhausting/exciting two days ever.
Pippa’s Pan 盼 is ultimately a story about love and loss, recounting the journey of a woman suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease as she tries to recapture memories of her husband.
Please continue to follow our journey as we present the world with one of the first Virtual Reality Hybrid Live Action films ever! For now, check out this video below!
