Sometimes we are too quick to put children into boxes. Only measuring writing, their mathematics and sciences. Art and creative storytelling often doesn’t fit within the priority list. Times are changing.
Luckily Simeon found his way as a creative storyteller and decided to tell his story using interactive Virtual Reality.
VIVIDA use in-house expertise lead by our very own Charley Matthews. Simeon carefully crafted the story to make the most of the Virtual Reality technology. The technical team built environment and characters using Unreal Engine .The experience has been enjoyed across the world, from San Francisco to Boston and LA and of course London. Viewers have said it’s the most immersive story that they have ever experienced.
The technology used allows us to place the audience within the story, allowing for high quality engagement. In this case the team selected the Oculus Rift with hand controllers to provide the most immersive experience possible.
The capabilities of the equipment allowed us to add layers to the story, creating a meaningful experience as it unfolds.
We invite you into a world where we discover more about Vivida’s founder, Simeon Quarrie. You will take a journey through the eyes of Little Sim, the character we’ve created based on Simeon.
In developing Simeon’s story, the team used the latest technology to capture movement, expression and voice, creating characters and environments. We employed “user activated virtual hands” at key stages during the video. This enabled us to demonstrate what the technology can do and how it successfully draws the audience into the experience.
