The Goldfish Theory

The Goldfish Theory is a hilarious live action 360 film about a science experiment on a goldfish where you see everything from the goldfish's Point Of View!
The story is a humorous sci-fi comedy loosely based on Einstein's theory of relativity, in which two Danish scientist in a last desperate attempt to make a teleport/time machine,
actually succeed and travel around the world. The pair have been working together for 5 years without producing results, but are now faced with the dilemma of how to handle
their newfound achievement and how to get back home. To make matters works their experiment have disturbed the spacetime continuum, and they are soon fighting for
survival and to remedy their runaway experiment. But before they can save themselves, they must reconcile their feelings for one another, because they come to understand that
their metaphysical state is just as important as their physical experiment when it comes to dealing with time traveling goldfish.

Director Statement

My idea with this movie was to create a immersive cinematic film in 360, and approach the story telling from a sound perspective with complete 3D sound design to guide the viewer through the narrative. The experience is a testament to the fact that we can achieve a true cinematic experience even though the audience have control over the interactive storyline and point of view.
