Have recently been working on a collaborative research project with folk from the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, FACT Liverpool, LJMU, Kinicho and Manchester School of Art exploring fictional storytelling in 360/VR. This is a timelapse of the shoot.
The aim of the project is to develop a prototype scene from Kafka’s novel ‘The Trial’ as a way to explore the medium specific aesthetics and logistics of making films in immersive environments. The team comes from a number of disciplines including filmmaking, theatre, storytelling, new media and sound. We are exploring a number of questions related to using sound, cinematography, editing, agency, embodiment and dramatic staging and performing in a uniquely VR way.
