Felix & Paul Release Water-Themed Cirque du Soleil VR Experience

"[One] sequence shows the same performance to the right and left of the viewer — on one side, the camera looks down at the performance, and on the other, the camera is underwater, looking up at the same sequence."

Felix & Paul Studios have released their third VR collaboration with Cirque du Soleil, the 12-minute Dreams of O.

The experience is based on Cirque du Soleil’s water-themed show O, playing at Las Vegas’s Bellagio.

Explains The Hollywood Reporter, “Felix & Paul develops its own camera systems, and it reported that for Dreams of O, it combined its slow motion and underwater capabilities to create a camera system that could film underwater sequences in slow motion. One such sequence shows the same performance to the right and left of the viewer — on one side, the camera looks down at the performance, and on the other, the camera is underwater, looking up at the same sequence.”

Dreams of O will be made available initially for Samsung Gear VR headsets. Read the full story here.
