THE VIKING PLANET AWARDED THE BEST VR FILM
AESTHETICA SHORT FILM FESTIVAL WINNER
We are immensely proud to be the winner of the best VR Film at Aesthetica Short Film Festival in 2019. Our film, Virtual-Viking: The Ambush, was produced in collaboration with Ridley Scott’s RSA Group and has the world’s first virtual reality battle scene using volumetric capture.
The Ambush transports guests more than a thousand years to the western coast of Norway where an ambush by rival Vikings unfolds before you.
A QUOTE FROM TECHRADAR
“We’ve been to a lot of VR demos — everything from 8K batman helmets to nausea-inducing paragliding — but The Ambush felt incredibly fresh. The closest comparison I can think of is sitting on stage in a theatre, with the actors only a few feet away from you. I could see the Vikings in front of me heaving their chests as they rowed their ship down the river at night, squinting their eyes to see better in the dark, knuckles tensing around their CGI oars, and flinching as projectiles began to rain down on their allies.”
