The Posies – Unlikely Places, directed by KIM VOYNAR and NATHANIEL LUKE PINZON
Shot in 2016 at Theory Labs in Los Angeles, this 360 music video for Seattle indie music icons The Posies explores grief and loss abstractly through music, words, and layers of imagery that evoke the sense of wandering through intersecting memories of love and loss.
Rone, directed by Lester Francois
RONE is a distinctive portrait of the titular street artist, whose stunning large-scale portraits of women’s faces can be found adorning soon to be forgotten spaces, acting as a commentary on gentrification and the masculine realm of street art. The 360′ film and interactive VR art gallery takes the viewer inside Rone’s world: we follow him into the rarely-explored spaces in which he works (an abandoned paper mill, a house set for demolition, a crumbling theatre), and learn about his unique philosophy on art and life. The VR experience also takes the viewer into a Rone exhibition and inside his studio, giving them a front-row seat to the artistic process behind Rone’s epic murals.
Homecoming: Seduction, directed by Lance McDaniel
Homecoming: Seduction uses the language of dance to explore the challenges of avoiding addiction, the emotional rush of using, and the inevitable crash that always follows.
Space X Girl, directed by Minhyuk Che
Space x Girl is story about a girl and her space. The girl has a unique sense of feeling the emotion of the space. One day her home invites her into strange and familiar rooms that remind her nostalgias.
Everything Flows, directed by Yumeng Du
Everything Flows is a VR film experience that presents the time and space with a mixture of painting, video capture, sounds, dreaming, memory, and reality.
Unraveled – The Future of Music with Virtual Reality and 360 Media, directed by Yao
ICTUS’s new release Unraveled is an ocean of repressed and unleashed emotions. It exists in an uncontrolled mental space, where your subconscious is fighting to see the light. Every single element of the composition is tailored to this feeling. The lead singer and writer of the lyrics, Sherry Li, sings at a steady tempo representing one’s restrained and logical self. Underlying it, the surrounding choir’s rubato chant tides us to the surface of our greatest fears and most heartfelt desires. With sensibility, the intimate whispers come and go, echoing the endless boundaries of our minds. They brush the different sides of our common bodies. There is no surprise that, when immersed in this unknown territory, we find ourselves unsealed. Vulnerable again. Muting our silences. As the song progresses, the duality slowly merges, forming a complete and free identity, swaying in its newfound liberty.
The Evolution of Testicles, directed by Ryan Hartsell
Two parts humor, one part emotion, this salty-sweet VR piece starring Chris O’Dowd raises awareness about testicular cancer through laughter and inspiration.
The Other Dakar, directed by Selly Raby Kane
A little girl is chosen to discover the invisible Dakar.
The Wall VR, directed by Claudio Lai
Two university college men who live in El Paso, Texas remember ten years back when they left their homes in Mexico and El Salvador. They flashback to the difficulties and hardships associated with crossing the U.S / Mexico border as undocumented children.
