Posted July 20, 2015 by Jamie O'Dwyer in News

The Last Mountain is a short virtual reality film made for the Oculus DK2.

The short is a collaborative effort from Kaleidoscope with a team from ILM, Lucasarts and Dreamworks, The short is set around a rock creature searching for companionship of his own kind.

The project was used to determine whether cinematic norms can translate to virtual reality such as cuts and transitions through scenes, as well as being able to guide the users gaze towards the right area of each scene while still allowing them the freedom of movement that VR offers.
