Emmy Award-winning creator of immersive entertainment experiences Felix & Paul Studios has been selected to premiere two new virtual reality experiences at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.
The first experience is called “Marshall from Detroit.”
The company has put together a 360-degree virtual reality experience featuring Eminem and Sway Calloway.
The 21-minute immersive VR experience was directed by Caleb Slain in collaboration with Félix Lajeunesse & Paul Raphaël, along with Facebook’s Oculus.
“Marshall from Detroit” invites the viewer to join Eminem on a night ride through Detroit with an up-close-and-personal view into the rapper’s thoughts and views on the city he has always called home.
“Traveling While Black” was directed by Academy Award winner Roger Ross Williams in collaboration with Félix Lajeunesse and Paul Raphaël and co-directed by Ayesha Nadarajah.
The 20-minute 3D, 360-degree virtual reality documentary immerses the viewer in the long history of restricted movement for black Americans and the creation of safe spaces in our communities.
Marshall from Detroit and Traveling While Black will run at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival New Frontier exhibition from January 24, 2019 through February 3, 2019 in Park City, Utah.
