Launched by one of the biggest VR companies, the world’s first long-form scripted VR comedy, Miyubi aired last week, and Jeff Goldblum has made a cameo appearance!
First premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, Miyubi has since been shown at Cannes International Film Festival and at SXSW. It takes its audience through a series of strange events as you follow the life of a suburban family in America who live in 1982. It’s a story of a Japanese home robot that is gifted to a family.
The actual film is about 40-minutes long. The plot has some nostalgic references, including the original Battlestar Galactica, Kiss and Cold War-era anxieties.
Here is the Jeff Goldblum-version:
and the trailer which is filmed from the droid’s eyes:
The project is created by Felix & Paul Studios, in collaboration with Funny or Die. Besides Goldblum, P.J. Byrne, Emily Bergl, Owen Vaccaro, Richard Riehle, Ted Sutherland and Tatum Kensington Bailey have taken part in the project. Miyubi is now available for free for the Rift and Gear VR.
We bet Miyubi will be the kids’ favourite VR experience soon.
