Virtual reality films are spherical, which creates a lot of filmic space for the director to play with. For filmmakers, this creates new possibilities, yet at the same time imposes restrictions. For the viewers virtal reality creates new, but sometimes overwhelming experiences.
This project was commissioned by GoShort Film Festival Nijmegen to introduce people to this new medium and their virtual reality film-programme.
What happens when we try to unfold virtual reality films to flat projections? I applied age old map making folding techniques on virtual reality films, which stretch and squeezes the filmic space.
