SUNDANCE: Disney’s first VR film, Cycles
Disney is using animation to show a serious conversation many adult children must have with their parents. And for the first time ever, the Mickey Mouse company is using Virtual Reality to do it.
Director Jeff Gipson uses his own childhood memories of moving his grandparents into assisted living for this short film. So far, Disney isn’t sure how to present this in VR to the masses, but host Heather Kelly offers an idea in exchange for 10% of the profits.
