‘Invasion!’ Director Says Character-Based VR Should Borrow From Classic Storytelling Techniques

Baobab Studios’ VR film “Invasion!” is a character-based animation that turns you into a fluffy white bunny trying to thwart an alien invasion.

“[Character-driven VR] should be an experience where the viewer feels that they have an impact and where their involvement matters,” director Eric Darnell tells PSFK. “[But the delivery should be] a tightly crafted experience that leads the viewer, beat by beat, through a predetermined well-paced story driven by the language of classic storytelling [and not just] a game, or an experience where the viewer has control over the timing, or an exploratory experience, or a ‘choose your own adventure’ type experience.”
