Have you Already Heard About it?
Go Short is a film festival held in Nijmegen, a Dutch city in the province of Gelderland. The mission and aim of the festival is to showcase the best short movies nationally and internationally every year, and this year is their 10th event. This festival takes up to five days, during which guests will be entertained with a variety of movies, such as documentaries, animations and art films created by filmmakers and amateurs. This is not the only thing that Go Short does! It is also possible to attend lectures, workshops and parties!
Why are we Talking About This?
The Creative Lab has been producing movies for the Go Short Film Festival for over four years. The first movie created for the festival by the lab was in 2014, for which we created the Dyskinectic 360. For the year 2015, a group of students came up with a movie called The Prism. The year after, XSTNCE was created with the help of 360-degree technology. Last year, we created The Dancer Awakes. Everytime we return to the Go Short Film Festival, we try to differentiate ourselves from the rest. We do this by using technology that is not currently used for commercial purposes. This gives the audience the chance to experience the technology that otherwise would not be available for them. Every year, we get to see how amazed people are by the technology which inspires us to keep creating movies with this kind of technology.
Why is This Year Even Better?
This year, we will present a VR murder mystery movie called LAB5, inspired by the game Cluedo. We will be experimenting with a new way to implement VR, involving various actors and an interesting storyline, all of which will be seen through a 360-degree camera.
Sneak Peek to the Story
The story is about a research team that is trying to discover the behaviour of people that are put in an intense situation. It will be a social experiment in a laboratory, during which insights on emotions and human nature will be gained. Interested in reading more? Check the article!
