This time, VR shows us the world from a completely different perspective. A VR movie about a blind man who narrates his own sight of vision is filmed.
John Hull, whom the movie is about, is a theologian who spent 16 years chronicling his degenerative blindness in an audio journal before total darkness fell in 1983. This year, the Sundance Film festival hosted the premiere of the movie.
Each scene addresses one of his memories and locations from his audio-diary. Sound is used to create visual cues that build on the sentiment that other senses are heightening and visually balancing as your eyes dim.
Here’s a short introduction of the movie:
Amaruy La Burthe from Audiogaming, explains something about this,
Forty-eight hours before the release, we discovered that the new version of iOS 10 introduced a major bug! You don’t have technical problems like that on an animated series. You’re not going to lose all your rendering 48 hours before showing it to the public.
Alongside the film, there’s “Notes on Blindness: Into Darkness,” another VR project that builds on audio odyssey. The project is funded by ARTE.
