Pearl

From Google Spotlight Story

The first VR movie to have been nominated at the Oscars
Pearl sweetly tracks the relationship of a father and daughter through the years, from their early days criss-crossing the country, living out of the car in support of his music, through to her rebellious teen years, and eventually a music career of her own. It is an emotional journey told in montage, and is both unique for its approach to the challenges of VR storytelling, but also in the way it incorporates music as a central element.

  • “Some movies immerse you into childhood. Others make you feel the total freedom of teenage years. And then, some capture the weight and the responsability of being parent. "Pearl" manages to do all of this, in only six minutes. ”

    Courrier International

  • "Patrick Osborne’s VR short animation, a blend of music video and narrative, is fantastic and one of the most emotionally engaging works we’ve experienced in this new medium."

Invasion!

From Baobab Studios

From the director of Madagascar and narrated by Ethan Hawke, “INVASION!” is the story of menacing aliens who come to take over Earth and destroy anyone who tries to stop them.

Despite the aliens’ superior technology and firepower, the citizens of Earth are able to rise up and defeat the invaders. But these citizens aren’t humans. Instead, they are two of the cutest, sweetest, cuddliest and meekest creatures of our planet — two adorable little white bunnies — and you are one of them! “INVASION!” is a VR animation where you try to fend off the aliens.

  • Combining an undeniable love of animation and years of data of tracking human interactions with games enabled Baobab to add an impressive level of connection with a character you spend only 6 minutes with in the short. From the first time I made eye contact, I wanted to know more about that bunny and to love, pet and squeeze her.
