nDreams and VVP explore VR film/games
12th December 2014
nDreams and Bristol-based VR film specialist Virtual View Productions today announce the signing of a memorandum of understanding between their two companies, to explore ways to work together in the crossover area between VR film making and VR gaming.
Announcing the partnership at VRLA (a Los Angeles based VR meet up), Stuart Gallop, CEO of Virtual View productions, said, “VR represents an exciting new era in entertainment content and will provide content creators a new way to engage audiences in ways never possible before. Working with nDreams and the experienced and talented team they have will provide us with a great partner who shares our passion for VR entertainment and will help us create stunning new VR experiences for audiences.”
Patrick O’Luanaigh, nDreams CEO said, “We’re delighted to be exploring new ground with Stuart and the Virtual View Productions team. VR is a vast, uncharted landscape full of interesting and unique opportunities, and with games under our belt such as Xi and Secret Lewis, we’ve always been intrigued by the boundary between filmed content and gaming. We’re looking forward to investigating how gaming and 3D 360-degree film can work together in virtual reality to create new kinds of VR entertainment experiences.”
Virtual View Productions is a growing UK-based VR film and entertainment company. The company recently agreed VR content licensing deals with two major Dubai entertainment brands, Aurora Gaming and Kids and Teens Entertainment.
nDreams is a VR specialist that has been working on VR since summer 2013. The company has two launch titles for the Samsung Gear VR headset, Gunner and Perfect Beach, and announced the Project Morpheus/Oculus Rift adventure game, The Assembly, earlier in 2014. nDreams was formed in 2006, and prior to VR, became the largest global developer/publisher in Playstation Home. The company was also behind two of the biggest alternate reality games of the last decade.
