VR Wonders of the World is a 360˚virtual reality series that enables those who are adventurous to travel the globe experiencing amazing cities, breath taking landscapes, diverse cultures and even outer space. Witness the magic of an Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights), the beauty of the Grand Canyon, or explore the Maldives. Experience your bucket list, in an immersive way, from the comfort of home.

‘Canucks VR Experience’ was a collaboration between Perspective Films and the Vancouver Canucks, to create their first ever virtual reality experience. This 360˚ video transports season ticket holders and sponsors, into an immersive environment — just put on a headset and you are right there, on the ice singing along to the national anthem.

Look up and see the moon and stars!

Memory Lane is a conceptual VR short film utilizing motion control Hyperlapse technology that was first implemented in the experimental short “In Motion“. To create this experience a custom four wheeled VR robotic camera took long exposure pictures while talent was directed .

Back in January, 2013 we set out to capture a 24 hour time lapse perched on one of the most beautiful roof top views in Vancouver, British Columbia. However, the weather turned against us and the worst fog developed inhibiting views of the spectacular mountains and ocean. Luckily, the final footage turned out to be an amazing VR experience.
