What if the audience of a film could get rid of the frame, not only look everywhere, but also walk inside a film?
“Vera”, an adaptation of “Dill Pickle by Katherine Mansfield directed by Krzysztof Pietroszek, is a trans-media project in which I worked as a Gaffer and Associate Producer. It is one of the first fiction period piece that features emerging technologies such as volumetric capture and photogrammetry to achieve a recreation of a scene where the viewer can literally walk into, through the use of VR equipment in a special facility.
The project features a traditional 2D version, a 360 VR version, and an interactive “volumetric” version, produced in its entirety in New York City, through Think Off Films LLC. The project was also part of the featured projects of American University’s Ideas Lab.
This project used photogrammetry and volumetric techniques needed to recreate a spatial experience in which the audience could “walk into”. The three versions are available as one experience.
