Britannia VR: Out of Your Mind, our upcoming interactive VR experience created with Sky VR to support the release of Sky Atlantic’s second series of Britannia, has been selected to be featured at the 2019 Venice Film Festival.
Set in 43AD, the captivating, anarchic drama follows the Roman army as they return to crush the Celtic heart of Britannia, a mysterious land led by warrior women and powerful Druids who claim to channel the powerful forces of the underworld. The first season received a positive critical response and was renewed for a second series in March 2018.
Developed by Hammerhead, creators of Virtual Viking: The Ambush and SYREN, this new experience invites you to explore and interact with the genre-bending, psychedelic world of Britannia. A story told in two parts, you’ll step into the world of Druid magic and mysticism, and then later enter the realm of Roman imperialism and power. Along the way, you’ll meet Veran (Mackenzie Crook) and Ania (Liana Cornell), brought to life in incredible photo-realistic detail, recreated with volumetric capture.
We’re delighted to have been selected for this esteemed festival, and look forward to sharing our studio’s awesome work on Britannia VR. Get in touch if you’d like to learn more about this project.
