Prolific producer and distributor of 360-degree content, Jaunt, has announced the launch of the Indie Pics world, aimed at promoting indie filmmakers whilst providing a dedicated resource for creatives.
For the launch today, Indie Pics will home a dozen immersive experiences from filmmakers including Steye Hallema, Boston McConnaughey, and John Hudson.
Jaunt envisioned the new portal as a place for creators to showcase their work, connect, and hopefully inspire each other. It’ll feature the latest innovative projects employing new technology, new storytelling grammar, new camera movement and more. Jaunt will continuously add more experiences focusing on innovative projects that look to push the boundaries of the VR medium.
Content currently available include Ashes to Ashes from WeMakeVR which debuted today; Magnificent 7, a VR companion piece exploring the backstory of Emma Cullen, the heroine in Antoine Fuqua’s Magnificent 7; No Other Like You, where a young man tells his girlfriend the story of what happened to him the day they met, to name just three.
There’s always plenty of experiences appearing on Jaunt from documentaries and travel, to horror, sports, music and news. This year has seen RYOT release Bashir’s Dream, Conservation International with Under the Canopy, Manchester City FC provide a tour of its stadium, and Jaunt itself release The Cinematic VR Field Guide: A Guide to Best Practices for Shooting in 360°. Jaunt also plans on reviving iconic 90’s VR themed movie The Lawnmower Man.
