VR EXPERIENCE 2
2017 | Canada | 40 mins | Felix Lajeunesse and Paul Raphael | Australian Premiere
Experience the Australian Premiere of the first-ever feature length virtual reality movie – a 40-minute, three-dimensional scripted comedy film written with the famed Funny or Die crew.
Emmy-award winning production house Félix & Paul Studios worked with a fantastic cast to create this first-ever scripted VR project, which lets you inhabit the heart and chassis of Miyubi, a domestic family robot. The year is 1982, and Dad is finally home for Christmas. To make up for multiple absences, he’s bought his kids a Japanese toy robot. Everyone is thrilled (except Grandpa), but will the gift heal the family’s wounds or will Miyubi also come to know the pain of obsolescence?
Packed with kitschy ‘80s pop culture references (plus a secret cameo from Jeff Goldblum!), Miyubi was a hit when it premiered at Sundance this year. Interact with the film and watch out for the Easter eggs to unlock a secret scene!
