VR has taken over multimedia and entertainment in the last few years. In fact, almost every company is producing their own VR headset nowadays. But for this year, it seems that VR is now ready to enter the realm of narrative storytelling with Invisible. In the past, VR ‘shows’ like Oculus’ Henry and interactive adventure Allumette spearheaded the concept, but this time Invisible looks to take the throne.
Invisible, coming soon to Samsung VR, will be the first major series designed with 360-degree virtual reality in mind. The project touts the talents of director Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity, Edge of Tomorrow) and screenwriter Melisa Wallack (Dallas Buyers Club). The six-episode series will introduce audiences to the Ashlands, a rich and powerful New York family coping with a death in the family. The Ashlands are wealthy, but prefer to live without the notice of society, precisely because they themselves have the power to turn invisible.
This first trailer may just tell us what the series will be like, which features 360-degree view of every scene in the video. We don’t have a full episode yet, but if Invisible truly is the show it claims to be, we may just be viewing the rise of a milestone in virtual reality technology.
