Rembrandt in stereo 360

Force Field studio released a really high quality VR movie about life and art of Rembrandt. Video was shot in stereo format. Finding yourself in Holland of 1642 a spectator enters Rembrandt’s house. Authors shows us a quarrel scene between a painter and a customer of the «Night Watch» painting, who was disappointed with a modern idea of Rembrandt’s work. Director wisely uses virtual reality tricks: Rembrandt speaks with a spectator, making him a main character, asks to pose in a way to look around the scene and perks his finger in viewer’s face, letting him feel all the advantages of stereo format. The movie is available for downloading in Oculus Store for Gear VR headset.
