SEATTLE, May 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- In a house haunted by secrets, a family confronts an unforgettable tragedy. Enter the world of Séance: The Unquiet from Holospark with a free five-minute virtual reality demo available today for download in the Oculus Store and on Steam. You will witness the family's fate as you take part in a virtual séance.
This dramatic new experience evolves cinematic storytelling in virtual reality. Holospark is breaking new ground by putting audiences into a movie like never before using a combination of videogame tools and techniques (including the Unreal game engine), as well as the latest performance-capture technology.
"We wanted to create a VR film that was immediately accessible and entertaining for the Netflix generation," said Executive Producer John Scott Tynes. "But using our experience as video game developers, we are able to dynamically craft emotional, cinematic moments in response to the audience's attention and movements."
Characters in Séance look you in the eyes. Dynamic music and sound design adapt to the audience's gaze. And everywhere, your sense of immersion and presence with the characters in the unfolding story is absolutely transporting.
"Telling stories in this medium requires new tools and techniques," said Art Director Bruce Sharp, "but fundamentally we're making an entertaining and frightening film with great characters and real emotion, using the very latest technology."
The full version of Séance will run approximately twenty minutes and be released later in 2017.
