Film Directed by Vrse.works’ Imraan Ismail & Ben Solomon, Available to Over 1 Million NYT Subscribers

The New York Times is taking its first step into virtual reality with the release of documentary short “The Displaced.” Directed by Vrse.works’ Imraan Ismail and The New York Times’ Ben Solomon, and colored by Company 3’s Dave Hussey, the film profiles three children caught in the global refugee crisis and coincides with a feature in the November 8 edition of The New York Times Magazine. The Times is providing Google Cardboard VR viewers to over one million Sunday edition subscribers free of charge, letting subscribers easily view the film on their mobile devices via the new NYT VR app (available on both the Apple App Store and Google Play).

Company 3 has an ongoing relationship with Vrse.works, recently providing color grading for their UN VR documentaries “Clouds Over Sidra” and “Waves of Grace,” and Guy Shelmerdine’s VR music video “Revolt” for Muse. For “The Displaced,” Hussey carefully matched the look of the film to the photos in the corresponding Times Magazine article in order to lend a cohesive feel across mediums. He completed color grading on DaVinci Resolve.

Additional NYT VR projects, developed in conjunction with Vrse.works and colored by Company 3, are slated to roll out in the coming months. For more information on Hussey and other Company 3 colorists, please visit http://www.company3.com/.
