Publish date:

New virtual reality studio Baobab Studios will be releasing a standalone short animated film next year called "Invasion!"

Baobab is founded by former Zynga VP Maureen Fan and Magacascar co-director Eric Darnell and has received $6 million dollars in funding from Comcast Ventures.

Says Fan about the reasoning behind the 10-minute short, "From a technology viewpoint, tech changes so quickly that by the time we could finish a full length film, the tech would be obsolete. From an audience perspective, you may not want to put that headset on your head for long periods of time."

Watch the trailer for "Invasion!" below.
