A new, dramatic science-fiction narrative series in 360 video format is premiering at the 2016 International Film Festival & Awards Macau (IFFAM) on December 10th.
Named as “Remember” the series will explore our emotional relationship with technology in thirteen episodes. Each episode will be 20 minutes long and compatible with Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Samsung Gear VR and Google Cardboards.
“VR has not only allowed us to expand on how we tell stories, but also how we engage with them.” said director George Kacevski. “We believe Virtual Reality is a new consumption medium, built for experiencing different methods of storytelling. What we are exploring with Remember has bridged the gap between 360 videos and traditional cinema. Remember is fully immersive and dynamic, allowing the audience to step fully into the story in a new way,” he added in a written statement.
‘Remember’ was shot on location in Australia and Macau and features Rosie Lourde (Starting From Now), Roger Sciberras (Fool’s Gold) and the voices of Cam Ralph and Paige Walker. With Executive Producers Travis Rice, Jay Chun and Yan Chen it is produced by Shane Fernandez and directed by George Kacevski and Frederic Simard.
