Does virtual reality bring the promise of changing marketing for the better? How will it influence the process of building bond between a user and consumer with a brand? What makes individually designed message a mass success? Answers to these and many other questions could be found at this year’s Filmteractive 2016.
Total immersion in virtual reality
The real adventure was provided by VR Adventure Box – an installation prepared by Deloitte Digital team – the organiser of Filmteractive festival. Virtual reality could be experienced thanks to pre-release Oculus Touch – unique controllers capturing gestures and hand movement, providing total immersion. VR Adventure Box took users on a journey through a forest, ocean depths and a canyon. The audience could participate in the adventure as observers, watching the experience on a specially installed 10-metre screen.
#VR dominated Filmteractive Market as well. The final projects selected by the international jury could be enjoyed up close in Innovation Zone and during pitching sessions. The winning project – Virtelio from Luxembourg – received the main prize (10 000 PLN) and MIPTV invitation. The jury awarded the second and the third prize as well, to Chernobyl VR and RAY respectively.
The topic of virtual reality had its crowning in a discussion panel moderated by Artur Kurasiński, who also hosted the festival. New technology – its chances, threats and ethics – was discussed by: Morgan Bouchet (Orange), Dorota Żurkowska-Bytner (Discovery Networks), Piotr Iwanicki (Superhot), Łukasz Kosuniak (Samsung Electronics) oraz Dawid Marcinkowski (The Kissinger Twins).
