Next Attenborough documentary being filmed for Oculus Rift (Wired UK)
This makes perfect sense to me. If the production is already being filmed in 3D, it seems like a logical leap to use the same equipment to create something unique for VR headset users. I’m sure it adds to the production time, but what a fantastic opportunity to create something that is really a new form of entertainment.
David Attenborough’s next production,Conquest of theSkies,is set to come not only to Sky 3D TV sets, but tovirtual-reality headset OculusRift.
John Morris, commercial director of Atlantic Productions, themakers of the Borneo-based show, told entertainment site realscreen that the company had acquired several OculusRift developer kits and that it was hoping to make Conquest ofthe Skies the first major wildlife production available toview on the headsets.
