The Right Choice VR

Making life or death decisions to save a family stuck in a war zone is a reality of life for thousands of people in Syria.

 

Collaborating with Visualise VR and directed by Avril Furness, this interactive 360 film was incredibly ambitious and a world first in VR, telling the story of a family during a typical evening spent at home. The familiarity of the family’s domestic living room setting is disrupted by armed militia surrounding their home and firing ammunition into their living room.

The viewer is given the choice within the narrative in the moment that the family are under siege, and influences the actions the family are to take next thus effecting the outcome of the film. The question is - are you going to make the right choice?
