Paradise Entertainment diversifies into VR

Paradise Entertainment Ltd. has announced that it will participate in the first edition of the International Film Festival & Awards Macau from December 9-11 this year, debuting the world’s first immersive media production- a television series and Virtual Reality 360 narrative.

In partnership with LENS Immersive, Pioneer AR/VR Studio and The Pulse VR the narrative, the film, titled “Remember” is a first of its kind science-fiction series, to debut as both a television series and Virtual Reality 360 narrative.

The full trailer will be shown at the Festival.

“Remember” defines long format VR narrative by adopting a dramatic tonality with blockbuster action. Pushing the envelope of nascent VR series, “Remember” throws the viewer into a first person dystopian future where personal memories are but another digital asset. For a full 20 minutes per episode, the audience is given the chance to explore the future as if sifting through their own memories. The cinematic fourth wall is broken through, where not only the line between the subject and the camera is blurred, but the difference between storyteller and audience disappears.

“We are pleased to work together with Australian VR company, LENS, to develop world leading entertainment products and to bring innovations and unique 360 virtual reality movie experience to masses.” said Jay Chun, chairman and managing director of Paradise Entertainment.

“Remember” has bridged the gap between 360 video and traditional cinema, allowing the audience to step fully into the story in a new way. The company will continue to develop both gaming and non-gaming technology for the best interests of our shareholders,” he added.

Chief content officer of LENS, Travis Rice said “VR has not only allowed us to expand on how we tell stories, but also how we engage with them. We believe Virtual Reality is a new consumption medium, built for experiencing different methods of storytelling. 360 video within VR has been almost solely concentrated on technology proof of concept, with very little emphasis on full scale narrative. VR Plus turns over the current idea. “Remember Episode 01” is the first to show us the future crossover of television and immersive cinema.”

“Remember” will be shown at the First Edition International Film Festival & Awards Macau.
