Director Statement

STRANDS OF MIND is cinematic VR, aimed to give the viewer a strongly immersive and emotional audio-visual experience. It explores a world beyond the bounds of our filtered human perception. Leading the viewer into mysterious and magical places, alien but yet somehow familiar. From the luminous pulse of life, through cavernous, hostile darkness, into the woven nature of existence.

The aim was to bring three different worlds together, to create something intense and not seen before: high quality Visual Effects with unlimited complexity, immersive Virtual Reality and the realm of magical, psychedelic journeys.

The film was created fully digital in stereoscopic 4K at 60fps with immersive spatial audio. It is conceptualized to be viewed on high quality VR Head Mounted Displays like Oculus Rift/Quest/Go, HTC Vive and similar.
