How we created a truly immersive story to help jumpstart Samsung’s “Pilot Season”
Earlier this month, the RSA VR team was fortunate enough to help our friends at Occupied VR with a project that would help Samsung launch their latest VR initiative, “Pilot Season,” a platform to jumpstart the Samsung VR Video Service ecosystem with exclusive, quality content created by passionate indie filmmakers.
The project is called “Lightcatcher,” and it’s a 4-part 360 virtual reality adventure showcasing the fragile beauty of planet Earth, and how it’s begun to change. Led by Jen Dennis, the collaboration was seamless and creatively inspiring at a time where VR is constantly pushing the boundaries of immersive storytelling.
“J. Lee and his Occupied VR team were amazing to team up with, savvy and fearless collaborators both creatively and technically in the ‘wild west’ of VR,” says Jen Dennis, Head of RSA VR. “J. Lee recognized “Lightcatcher’s” story was a great fit for VR, which really maximized its impact as a palpable sensory experience. We’re excited to be part of Samsung’s “Pilot Season”, which will open up the world of episodic VR content and storytelling to wider audiences.” – Jen Dennis, Head of RSA VR
