Submarine Channel and AVRO TROS lanceren Virtual Reality film ASHES TO ASHES

16 maart 2017

Ashes to ashes is a surreal tragicomedy in virtual reality. The 11-minute one-shot immerses the viewer in the story about a dysfunctional family burdened with the bizarre final wish of their deceased grandfather. Filmed from the perspective of the urn containing the ashes, viewers encounter the colorful family members, who each seem to live in a reality of their own creation.

Bejamin de Wit, executive producer of ASHES TO ASHES and founder of VR Days Europe, came up with the idea together with WeMakeVR to work with AVROTROS and Submarine Channel to create an experiment in VR. Goal of this exploration was to explore how visual storytelling works in a filmed 360 3D world.

Three directors from different professional backgrounds were invited to join forces; theater director Ingejan Ligthart Schenk, film director Jamille van Wijngaarden and Steye Hallema – the first director in the Netherlands to specialise in VR. Peter McLaughlin was the DOP and in charge of the post production. The film is written by Anne Barnhoorn, one of the most awarded screenwriters in The Netherlands.
