Is Scripted Live Action Production The Future Of VR
The amount and quality of VR content that is being produced currently is extremely encouraging. The fact that we are seeing top name studios and VR production companies focusing more and more on mainstream content to fill the entertainment needs of the consumer audience is even more encouraging. Noticeable at this years Sundance Film Festival was the number high production value VR entries. It’s obvious that the future of VR rests to some extent on the industries ability to expand the creation of content at a level that will influence consumer entertainment consumption. Solving the socialization challenge of theatrical presentations as Paramount and Bigscreen chose to do in their virtual reality movie theater premier of Top Gun in 3D last month is a big step forward in addressing what opponents to the VR movement claim is the biggest hurdle to mainstream entertainment acceptance.“No one wants to sit by themselves with a headset on and watch a movie “ The other barrier to widespread consumer acceptance frequently discussed is the lack of consistency in content. To date there has been very little production of, scripted, live action series based programing. What has been done has been very marginal in quality at best.  ReelTime VR, a Seattle based VR Production Company is a noticeable exception. They currently produce two popular high end multi episode productions and we understand there are more on the way. ”In Front of View”, a travel series starring Supermodel Front Montgomery and her daughter Leonie Montgomery which is our pick for Best Travel Series. ReelTime VR also produces “Really Twins” a tween entertainment series starring the “Really Twins” twins Austin and Brandon. Really Twins recently became the Most Experienced Premium VR Content of 2018 on VeeR VR worldwide after only 30 days on the platform and has been the most popular non-animated youth series on Samsung Gear VR since it first aired in 2017 propelling it to win the VR Biz Awards Best Live Action Series. The fact that their episodes have gained immediate acceptance tells us that viewers want consistent content they can enjoy week by week just as they do their traditional network TV programming, they just prefer to do it in the elevated viewing experience of virtual reality.
