An uncanny encounter with the departed.

Through startling twists and spectacular visuals, “Eye For An Eye: A Séance in Virtual Reality” invites viewers along for an uncanny encounter with the departed - exposing the disturbing, unexpected truth about Calvin. Perhaps some mysteries are just better left unsolved.
"One of the best experiences I’ve had with Eye For an Eye was when we showed it in a class of high school kids. They had no preconceived idea of what they were about to experience.What’s exciting is we get to bring VR to popular culture instead of just the balcony. And that’s really where it’s at. To break out of the ivory tower of VR and get it to people on the street and say does this work for you?
It’s been an incredible learning curve. And I feel like we’re just getting started,. it’s great be forging a path for people and helping figure out what works and what doesn’t. Everyone only has one first time for VR. You show them popcorn popping in VR their first time and they will experience a sense of amazement. But that is only the first time. It has a shelf life. So the real challenge becomes, can you keep producing content that replicates that experience and keeps audiences coming back.”
