Vincent Morriset’s new interactive web experience “Way to Go” was recently introduced at a virtual reality event at the Sundance Film Festival’s New Frontier program, utilizing the Oculus Rift VR headset. Now it’s available for free online.
The project is an immersive experience that allows users to lead their own journey at their own pace through the woods. Combining hand-made animation, 360-degree video capture, music (including a soundtrack by Philippe Lambert) and code, “Way to Go” marks the second collaboration between the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) and Morriset.
During the last decade, Morriset pioneered interactive videos for Arcade Fire (Neon Bible, Sprawl II, Just a Reflektor) and has also directed two feature films, “Miroir Noir” and “Inni,” a documentary on Sigur Rós.
