Virtual reality is growing and how! The technology has now entered the movie space with different movies being either made into a VR game or being turned into an immersive one. Just a couple of days back we had written about Paranormal Activity being turned into a VR game, now it’s time for the recently released global box-office dominating Jurassic World. The movie has been made into a virtual reality experience called Jurassic World: Apatosaurus. What does the experience have in store for the viewers? Let us have a look at this post to know more.
Jurassic World: Apatosaurus
Félix & Paul Studios, based in Montreal and a leading developer of cinematic live-action virtual reality content, has created this virtual reality experience named Jurassic World: Apatosaurus. The VR experience will be available on the Oculus Store.
The sound design has been done by Skywalker Studio and the mixing by Headspace Studio. Industrial Light & Magic have created the visual effects. In this VR experience, users will be able to encounter one of the largest dinosaurs that have ever existed on Earth, in the middle of Jurassic World on Isla Nublar.
Available to Samsung Gear VR Users
Samsung Gear VR Innovator Edition users will be able to view the Jurassic World: Apatosaurus VR experience through the Oculus Store, which is a new VR content discovery and distribution platform. Users will be able to download VR experiences, apps and games created by virtual reality developers and studios through the Oculus Store.
Doug Neil, EVP of Universal Pictures Digital Marketing said “Universal is excited to release the virtual reality companion experience to Jurassic World. The experience captures the essence of this unbelievable park that allows the viewer to see and hear the awesome presence of an Apatosaurus.”
Félix Lajeunesse director and visual artist of Félix & Paul Studios said “Jurassic World: Apatosaurus invites viewers to immerse themselves in what it would feel like to be in close proximity of a living dinosaur—with the mixture of striking beauty and awe that accompanies this experience.”
The Samsung Gear VR Innovator Edition, which is powered by Oculus, was recently launched at Best Buy stores across the United States. Users will be able to use their head mounted displays and directly access the Oculus Store.
