Biennale Cinema 2020 | Venice VR Expanded

I *was* going to spend my Labor Day weekend watching TV, but now I’m going to spend it here in this virtual reality exhibition by the Venice Film Festival.

Tonight I played the experience “1st Step – From Earth to the Moon”, and it was amazing. It recreated every detail of the Apollo missions and settings, letting me walk on the moon with the astronauts, see the rocket and LEM pass me by, fly over the moon and Earth, etc. I mean EVERY detail. It looked like I was actually on the moon (except with TV screen resolution). It wasn’t just a 360 video; they managed to give true depth to the scenes. When flying over the moon and Earth, I felt like the starchild in 2001.

I can’t wait to see all the other exhibits, which are free.

A maximum of 30 world-premieres or international premieres of Immersive Projects that can be 360 videos, 3DOF and 6DOF interactive works.
