A new science fiction VR series has launched, exploring our relationship with technology and its influence on our own identity. Remember is a collaboration between creative studio The Pulse, virtual reality and augmented reality film studio Pioneer VR/AR Studios and VR distribution platform LENS Immersive.

Throwing the viewer into a first-person dystopian future that they can explore as if sifting through their own memories, the series consists of 13 20-minute episodes. The cinematic fourth wall is broken when the line between the subject and camera is blurred, and the difference between storyteller and audience disappears.

Remember was shot on location in Australia and Macau and features Rosie Lourde (Starting From Now), Roger Sciberras (Fool’s Gold) and the voices of Cam Ralph and Paige Walker. The series premiered last month at the 2016 International Film Festival & Awards in Macau and is now available internationally on Lens Immersive in 4K streaming video for any VR headset.

Director George Kacevski said in a press release:

“VR has not only allowed us to expand on how we tell stories, but also how we engage with them. We believe Virtual Reality is a new consumption medium, built for experiencing different methods of storytelling. What we are exploring with Remember has bridged the gap between 360 videos and traditional cinema. Remember is fully immersive and dynamic, allowing the audience to step fully into the story in a new way.”

 

Episode 1 follows the story of a grieving mother who is new to Remember, a VR memory re-creation system. She learns how to use the software and begins to relive long-lost memories, escaping reality by immersing herself in her past, but as time passes she struggles to differentiate her virtual experiences from reality.
