Dear Angelica - Film Still 1 [399696]

DEAR ANGELICA

Saschka Unseld, United States, Animation, 2017, 14 min, English

A young woman writes to her mother, a deceased actress. The letter comes to life around her. Unveiled at Sundance 2017, Dear Angelica remains VR’s greatest aesthetic contribution to this day and truly marks a ‘crucial step’, as The Verge put it, in  immersive art.

Alteration

ALTERATION

Jérôme Blanquet, France, Science fiction, 2017, 17 min, English

Alexandro is the guinea pig for an experiment led by artificial intelligence which insinuates itself deeper and deeper into his subconscious. Inspired by Philip K. Dick, the producers of Okio-Studio return with one of the most well-crafted VR narratives of the moment.

Unframed, isle of he dead

UNFRAMED, ISLE OF THE DEAD

Martin Charrière, Switzerland, Animation, 2017, 6 min, French, English

Painted between 1880 and 1886 by Arnold Böcklin, The Isle of the Dead is probably one of most internationally-renowned Swiss paintings. Led by the irreverent Yann Marguet, this VR immersion in an artwork looks more like an acid trip than a museum tour.

Nightnight

NIGHT NIGHT

Guy Shelmerdine, Teal Greyhavens, United States, Horror, 2017, 7 min, English

An old cliché of horror movies, the evil clown has returned with the adaptation of Stephen King’s It, but not only: With Night Night, it also comes to life in a virtual reality nightmare. Who will dare be stuck with him for a few minutes?
