Private Project

The Presence VR

Two couples, an old apartment, and a séance gone wrong. Follow any story you like as the characters try to survive the horror they've unleashed.

"The Presence", the world's first fully interactive live-action narrative VR film, is a proof-of-concept illustrating two new approaches to VR storytelling: active and reactive. In the active version, the viewer is able to jump between multiple perspectives at will, allowing for an immersive and interactive narrative. In the reactive version, the viewer's gaze motivates the next shot, editing the film organically, allowing for a more cinematic VR experience.
