Our 2016 Winners
BBFF Best Achievement in a Virtual Reality 360 degree Experience (Interactive)
Home: A VR Spacewalk is a collaboration between the BBC and UK VR content specialists Rewind. It is a fully interactive, realtime rendered simulation of a spacewalk, where you are the astronaut that’s sent out to inspect damage to the ISS. You will get to feel what it’s like to be an astronaut floating 250 miles above earth with stunning and vast views of the spaceship, the space station and the universe.
BBFF Best Achievement in a Virtual Reality 360 degree Experience (Linear)
I, Philip is the first immersive short fiction piece developed in France. Shot in stereoscopic 3D you are taken inside the digital mind of one of the greatest writers of science-fiction of the 20th century – Philip K. Dick. Dick’s conspiracy and paranoia-driven stories inspired Blade Runner, Total Recall and Minority Report. His visionary imagination laid ground for our digitally-obsessed society. During the course of his life, he finally accepted that reality was nothing but a perfect illusion fooling his senses. What if his peers were robots? What if he was living in an alternate reality?
