Director Statement

As a cinephile, I am more interested in what VR video content can provide to me as a user than video games. Only a few filmmakers are pushing the limits in narrative live-action virtual reality short films. I believe that a feature-length virtual reality movie is a natural progression of the art as this medium moves closer to mass adoption.
