LIGHT SAIL VR & OPERA ON TAP WIN BEST VR VIDEO AWARD AT NYC INDEPENDENT FILM FESTIVAL
Los Angeles-based VR studio Light Sail VR and Opera on Faucet have been awarded the “Best Virtual Reality Video” honor on the 2017 NYC Unbiased Movie Competition for “The Parksville Murders, Episode 1.”
The engrossing video is the world’s first episodic horror opera crafted particularly for virtual reality, and immerses the viewer into the front-row seat of an exhilarating and cryptic virtual universe. Two younger girls get up confused and terrified in a darkish, music-filled world of incongruities and evil intentions, whereas unusual “watchers” lurk within the shadows and slowly collect across the duo, ceremoniously awaiting their destiny. One lady fights her means out, only to search out that ‘out’ could also be yet one more phantasm on this horrific, virtual environment.
The VR experience was produced Opera on Faucet, with VR providers by Gentle Sail VR, directed by Cari Ann Shim Sham*, music by Kamala Sankaram and libretto by Jerre Dye.
