THE STORY OF JESUS Coming to Virtual Reality This Christmas Season
AUTUMN™ VR Inc. and VRWERX, LLC have just announced the very first Virtual Reality Feature Length film will be brought to global audiences this Christmas season. Jesus VR - The Story of Christ, which runs 90 minutes, enables viewers the chance to experience the story of Jesus, from His Birth to His Resurrection, in a way never before seen or experienced.
Jesus VR - The Story of Christ offers audiences an experience that is unparalleled in its immediacy and intimacy. It transports the viewer back in time 2000 years ago to Jerusalem enabling them to walk step by step next to Jesus throughout his amazing journey. We will be present at Jesus's baptism, sit next to him as he delivers the Sermon on the Mount, witness first hand many of Christ's miracles, be present at the Last Supper, and be with Him in His last hours at His Crucifixion.
This is truly an immersive experience that cannot be missed and one that only Virtual Reality can deliver.
Shot entirely in 4K 360°, this is the first and most ambitious feature length 360 / VR Film ever produced, employing the biggest VR production crew ever, with over a hundred crew members and hundreds of extras.
"THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST" Executive Producer Enzo Sisti (Ben Hur, The Young Messiah, The Nativity Story) serves as Executive Producer of JESUS VR. The film's Religious Advisor is Father William Fulco, who was also Religious Advisor on THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST.
The rest of the production team consists of Director & Producer David Hansen along with his Autumn™ VR producing partner Johnny Mac and VRWERX's Alex Barder and Russell Naftal.
"The reactions by those that have seen it have been incredibly moving, bringing joyful tears to those who experience it," said director David Hansen. "The viewers truly feel they are there with Jesus and his disciples. This is the most powerful story of all time and Virtual Reality is the perfect way to tell it."
"This story of Jesus told on this immersive platform enables churches, ministries and other organizations to share the message of Christ in a way they have never been able to do before," said producer Alex Barder. "The spiritual journey the viewer goes through when they're there walking alongside Jesus is unmatched in any other telling of the story. Anyone with a smart phone who experiences this breathtaking story in 360 Virtual Reality will find it incredibly moving."
JESUS VR - THE STORY OF CHRIST will be available on all major mobile and premium virtual reality platforms including Google Cardboard, Samsung Gear, Oculus Rift, Playstation VR and the HTC VIVE.
