My best VR experiences (2015)


Journalism & documentary

waveOfGrace-VERSE-VR
GRACE by VRSE – Waves of Grave is a very affecting short story exposing the ebola epidemic in Liberia. It`s a powerfull experience in terms of feelings to be directly conected with the local population. The last close up shot really reveals how the distance between a human and a camera can play.

JR-walkingNewYork-VR
WALKING NEW YORK by VRSE by the incredible traveler photographer artist JR. A good way to see how you cope with vertigo while working.
If you don’t know JR, look at his documentary Women are Heroes.

Movie with CGI

Verse-evolution-VR
VERSE : Evolution – To understand the reaction of L’Arrivée d’un train en gare de La Ciotat and because this short is a good introduction to try VR experience.

marvel-heroes-VR
Marvel Samsung Virtual Reality Avengers Battle because yours friends like mens in pantyhose and CGI.

jurassikpark-paul-felix-GearVR
Jurassik Park – Apatosaurus because it is much more bigger than you. Play with scale is good for VR experiences.

ubisoft-assassin-vr
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate – Jack the Ripper shows VR is perfect to immersion somebody in another time and space. Sound design and slowmotion are good tricks to avoid motionsickness.

Help---the-mill
Help is a big production for Google Cardboard. Where are the others?

Videogames

ExpectYouDie-VR

I Expect You Die is a very good example of UX and gamedesign. Ok it’s just a funny escape room with shitty colors but all is perfect, certainly because Jessie Schnell, the creator, studies VR since 1992.

Drift-GearVR
Drift is a very good VR experience. They like to break the rules and i admit they do it well. We need to have more original games like that on VR to explore the possibilities of this new medium.

LandEnd-GearVR
Land’s End is a little bit boring but i’m sure if we could watch under every stones of the 3D cubic environnement, we would find something magic.
