The Recall VR Application Offers First-of-its-Kind VR Film, 2D Film & New Immersive 3-Screen Viewer Experience
The Recall VR Abduction app is the world’s first and only in-app transactional multi format movie experience. The app teleports you to the world of The Recall, staring Wesley Snipes, and welcomes you into the exclusive media lounge where you can immerse yourself in The Recall VR Abduction, enjoy “The Making of The Recall” in a giant home theater screen, and experience the trailers in 360-degrees, Barco Escape, and Standard 2D formats. The app contains the feature film, trailers in multiple formats, cast stills and extra exclusive behind the scenes video content in 2D format. Capable of streaming or downloading multi-format videos, this is also the first app to enable monetization of video content within the free app.
“Making a film is one challenge, but how the movie is delivered and the new technologies we can offer to make the experience more rewarding is why we are in this business.” said Kevin DeWalt, CEO of Minds Eye Entertainment. “With this new technology, we look forward to deepening our audience’s connections to our stories.”
“Our goal is to give fans a chance to do more than just watch a movie. This is the first time three forms of media are all within one app for a single film. The Recall VR app gives the audience multi-content options they can choose to enjoy,” said Travis Cloyd, VR Producer. “The Recall VR app paves the way for film producers to monetize their 2D and VR content through one platform.”
Distributed by ONETOUCH, and available through the Oculus store, The Recall VR Abduction movie app is a native application powered by SELVZ OTT media player technology, supporting 2D, 3D, 180/360-degree (monoscopic/stereoscopic), and Barco Escape formats, Spatial Audio, live and on-demand. The Recall VR Abduction solution enables viewers to fully screen the in-app video experience, and stream multi format video content from major OTT platforms like YouTube, Vimeo, Kaltura and Brightcove.
Directed by Mauro Borelli, The Recall stars Wesley Snipes and Breaking Bad’s R.J. Mitte and centers on a group of friends vacationing at a remote cabin lake house. When aliens attack Earth, the friends are forced to rely on an eccentric and mysterious hunter (Wesley Snipes) with special knowledge of the attack.
The mind bending VR short film produced by Kevin DeWalt, Danielle Masters, Travis Cloyd, Josh Courtney and Wesley Snipes puts the audience into the movie through the eyes of co-star RJ Mitte’s (Breaking Bad) character Brendan, as they battle aliens and avoid being abducted. It allows users to follow their own curiosity, whether it’s interacting with Wesley Snipes’ character the Hunter or fighting off aliens in the surreal landscape of British Columbia.
“These 3 experiences all within one digital platform is the first time this has ever been done.” Said Kevin DeWalt, Producer of The Recall and The Recall VR Abduction. “Our goal was to extend the users experience when watching films while utilizing new technologies that we felt will revolutionize the consumption of content.”
