Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 22, 2016
Immersive production company Clever Fox releases "Coyote" exclusively on Littlstar.com just ahead of the Sundance Film Festival & announces panel line-up.
Building on the strength of their first original VR film "Last Man Standing" Clever Fox continues to push the envelope of immersive storytelling with a 3D 360 degree ghost story set in the California desert. The film stars Stephanie Sheh & Joe Kaplan.
Director Dekker Dreyer believes Coyote is another leap forward.
"Our first original film had a huge response and it inspired us to push the envelope to make something that's best experienced on a VR headset in full 3D. My approach to making immersive films is to create a dream-like experience and mix different narrative styles. Coyote is very eerie and horror fans will love it. It's unlike anything I've ever shot before."
Dreyer is an advocate who wants to get fellow filmmakers excited about the evolving medium of virtual reality and as part of that mission he's hosting two panels in Park City, Utah. On January 26th at 2:45pm Dekker will be hosting a discussion about cinematic VR storytelling at the Slamdance Film Festival with an array of panelist including Matthew Collado of VR platform Littlstar, Kim Adams of Google Spotlight Stories, and Jacquie Barnbrook known for her work on the VR tie-in to the hit film "The Martian". On Monday the 25th he'll be joined by Alex Plapinger of PAVR, actors Stephanie Sheh (Coyote), Michael Sinterniklaas, and Sarah Himadeh (WEVR's The Visitor) to discuss acting for virtual reality. The panel takes place at 2pm at Park City Studios.
Clever Fox CEO Julia Howe believes that only by making great original content will VR find its legs in 2016.
"There are a lot of companies, like Clever Fox, making great branded content, but to keep the audience excited about VR the industry needs to invest in scripted originals. We try to bridge that gap by reinvesting in making independent productions like Coyote. The more great films are available the larger the market will grow."
Coyote is available now in 3D on Littlstar's Samsung GearVR app and will be available in your desktop browser, Apple TV, and on all iOS and Android devices via Littlstar on February 1st, 2016.
"The Clever Fox team continues to push the boundaries of Virtual Reality film making, using new techniques and styles to make their stories come to life, said Matthew Collado, Co-Founder and Chief Content Officer, Littlstar. "Littlstar is proud to exclusively premiere 'Coyote' on its 360° video platform and is looking forward to seeing what quality, immersive content Clever Fox comes out with next."
