“Tell me a fact and I’ll learn. Tell me a truth and I’ll believe. But tell me a story and it will live in my heart forever.” – Ed Sabol
VR Epics is a showcase for VR/AR epic stories and mini-epic stories (less than feature film length), as well as other VR/AR projects and hardware.
Besides promoting stories presented with VR/AR technology, we are including stories using a hybrid of traditional formats and VR/AR elements. For example, our first epic (Points in Time) is being developed with a hybrid format, which we call an iPlayScreen.
An iPlayScreen is a browser based interactive graphic novel with 2D animated scenes and selected scenes with VR that don’t require headgear. (Alternative versions of scenes that require headgear will be optional for users.)
We believe iPlayScreens are an important intermediary alternative until VR headgear becomes comfortable enough to allow immersive VR to be the predominant vehicle for story telling.
However, the gear won’t matter, if there aren’t great stories to tell and interesting techniques for telling them in VR. As a result, we are happy to encourage innovation by giving all developers the opportunity to showcase their completed projects, as well as ones in development.
