– Le Voyage Dans la Lun (A Trip to The Moon) in 360 VR –

WHO: NA/Self  ROLE: Designer  TOOLS: Photoshop, After Effects

Self-initiated project to get a better understanding of editing 360 video. Best viewed using HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, GearVR headsets, Google Cardboard  or you can just use your phone and most browsers to look around the video.  After viewing various 360 videos and seeing some of the strengths and limitations I developed this concept of a theater experience.  No 3D was used in this project this was all laid out in After Effects using the skybox plugin.

I decided on creating a hybrid Art Deco/Art Nouveau style room to kind of give the feel of the early 1900’s. Granted this is some what of an anachronism the movie Le Voyage Dans la Lun (A Trip to The Moon) was released in 1902.

This video was featured on the curated Samsung’s Milk VR video player for the GearVR headset!

– The wall poster in the VR video –

I created a few “set pieces” for this project here is the animated poster that hangs on the right hand side of the theater. I modified the original movie poster to become an animated movie poster.
