Felix + Paul Studios Teams Up With Samsung & Oculus VR


TORONTO, CANADA (September 4, 2014) - Felix & Paul Studios, a creative and technological leader in the field of live-action Virtual Reality content creation, has been chosen by Samsung and Oculus VR to create, direct, and produce the "Introduction to VR" 3D 360° Virtual Reality cinematic experience for the release of the new Samsung Gear VR mobile head-mounted display, powered by Oculus.

The two-minute INTRODUCTION TO VR experience is an extraordinarily immersive visual journey that will transport viewers transport viewers above the clouds to the summit of Haleakala, place them in the company of a nomadic Mongolian family in their yurt, at the center of a gravity-defying Cirque du Soleil performance, and from a satellite’s breathtaking point of view of Earth from outer space.

Two additional Virtual Reality experiences created and produced by Felix & Paul Studios will be featured on the Samsung Gear VR:

• STRANGERS WITH PATRICK WATSON is a four-minute intimate experience that places you in a recording studio with the famed Canadian musician Patrick Watson, as he composes a song at his piano.

• ZARKANA is an aerial strap performance specially designed for Virtual Reality where you are on stage of the spectacular and fantastic world of Zarkana created by Cirque du Soleil.

Felix & Paul Studios has developed proprietary 3D stereoscopic 360° camera recording technology and software. The creative team is on the forefront of producing premium live-action Virtual Reality content. They recently announced financing from the Montreal-based group PHI Centre.
