BBC to debut virtual reality film The Turning Forest #VirtualReality

Via BBC

The BBC has confirmed it will launch a new virtual reality film, The Turning Forest, next week.

The fairy tale will be made available for free on Daydream, Google’s mobile virtual reality product.

Daydream is a mobile headset which covers the eyes of the user and immerses them in the film they are watching.

The corporation has released a trailer for the experimental project ahead of its release next week.

The BBC said the project is part of the corporation’s drive to explore emerging technology and new storytelling mediums for future audiences.

The storyline of The Turning Forest sees a young child staring into the eyes of a fantastical creature before they embark on a journey together into a new realm of “folkish dimension and boundless imagination”, the BBC said.

The film also has its own “spatial” soundtrack, which is intended to be heard via headphones, further immersing the viewer in the virtual reality experience.
