Abstract

Ego Cure, directed by Synes Elischka, is a narrative virtual reality short film that unconventionally mixes together a new technical approach of film storytelling, CGI animation and interaction between the viewer and the art piece -stretching the limits of filmmaking. The film is part of a research project to study the mechanics of virtual reality in filmmaking, creating tools for high quality Cinematic VR. The film utilizes the Enactive Avatar, a technology creating a living, reactive photorealistic CGI character based on a real-life person. A co-production with Oblomovies.

Ego Cure on Synes Elischkan ohjaama tarinallinen virtuaalitodellisuuselokuva, joka yhdistelee uudella tavalla elokuvakerronnan tekniikkaa, tietokoneanimaatiota sekä vuorovaikutteisuutta katsojan ja tarinan välillä. Elokuva on osa tutkimusprojektia elokuvatuotannosta VR -tekniikalla tavoitteena kehittää elokuvakäyttöön laadullisesti sopiva Cinematic VR.
