VR company Jaunt, which is financially backed by Sky, ProSiebenSat.1 and Disney, has announced a new production deal to produce Invisible, an episodic action-adventure series created in immersive virtual reality. This is the latest project in Jaunt and Condé Nast Entertainment’s collaboration in serialised storytelling
Set in modern day Manhattan, the series will unravel the secrets of a prominent New York City family, the Ashlands, blessed with a supernatural gift passed down through generations.
“Exceptional content is at the core of our business, and we’re always looking for innovative ways to engage audiences,” said Dawn Ostroff, President of Condé Nast Entertainment. “Virtual reality offers us a tremendous opportunity to push the boundaries of our storytelling, and provide audiences a fully-immersive viewing experience. We’re thrilled to work with Jaunt and [director] Doug Liman on Invisible, I can’t think of better partners to have as we embark on this exciting and cutting-edge journey.”
“Doug Liman is a visionary Hollywood filmmaker and his decision to undertake this project in VR is a testament not only to the validity of the medium, but also to his fearless pioneering spirit,” said Cliff Plumer, President of Jaunt studios. “Episodic series such as Invisible are the future of mainstream VR content and will make waves attracting ever growing audiences. This partnership also ensures that Jaunt will continue to remain at the forefront of premium VR content production and distribution.”
Each chapter of the multi-episode series will be available via the Jaunt VR App on Google Play, iTunes and GearVR.
