We just wanted to give you kats a little bit of an update!
Originally shown on August 28th, 2014 at the Eurofurence Convention in Berlin, Germany; this is a slightly cut down version of the Kaze: GhostWarrior teaser. Using the original assets from the groundbreaking short film of 12 years earlier our team had to produce this in less than 24 hours complete with music, titles and editing. It was announced at Eurofurence that Kaze: GhostWarrior would finally go to series after so many years much to the delight of fans in the audience. What really caught their attention however was the Oculus VR logo when it showed on screen. “Kaze” will be produced along side “Stasys” and both series represent the worlds first pair of VR/AR TV series.
The final look of the characters in Kaze will be different from those in the original short film of course. Technology has progressed so much in the last 12 years allowing for us to take advantage of GPU rendering and simulation technology for fur/hair (absolutely critical when dealing with Anthropomorphic creatures like Kaze). It was good to know however that the original assets and technology used to produce the original short film still worked.
Once realized in VR and AR, both shows will be an immersive experience yet allow for either lean forward or lean back viewer enjoyment. The VR editions will be very much like “being there” while the AR versions offer a radical departure from conventional entertainment of today. The AR experience is best described as having a stage play presented to you on your desktop, coffee table or in your living room, holographically projected in front of you.
Needless to say, these productions are cutting edge and represent the next big step in entertainment.
