Teleportaled – Littlstar 4k, Vrideo 4k
A quirky short comedy about teleportation. It’s great to see comedies starting to pop up and I hope we see more from the creators.
Purple Pill VR filmed a musical performance with “The Laughing Heart – Omni” that really captures the viewers’ attention for the full 10 minutes, and gradually builds up to a spectacular finish. This is what 360° theater should be about, and shows the payoff when the format is kept in mind during the filming.
I’m not a big fan of instrumental music, but being surrounded by such a wonderful performance was a fantastic experience. This video is long, going on for almost 18 minutes.
There is something about this video that brought me pure joy when watching. I still laugh the third time the host shouts “Welcome to Portland” in the video. It’s also interesting how part of the tour is pointing out the homeless camp. This is just an all around well done video and should be viewed by anyone else doing tour videos as it’s very easy on the eyes with how it’s put together. The music also fits the video well.
This isn’t the hyped trailer that hit today, but it is something that’s currently able to be viewed in 360° video with a nice surprise at the end. I’ll be using this as my hype video while I wait for more Star Wars. It seems the creator of this video might be working on more as well.
