“It’s the psychological potential of VR film as a storytelling platform that Hammerhead’s creation manages to convey so well”
Road to VR
An original VR short film
ABE VR is a cinematic VR experience based on the multi-award winning short film, by Rob McLellan, and is the first ever virtual reality experience to be officially certified by the British Board of Film Classification (as a 15 age rating). It has also been selected for the BAFTA VR showcase.
With remarkably intense results, the film explores the emotional connection and heightened sense of empathy that VR delivers as a storytelling medium – introducing new techniques to enhance the feeling of presence, such as the eye tracking between ABE and us as a character, and the sense of physical restriction the user experiences.
