Project Description

100 JAHRE UFA

VIRTUAL REALITY

DESCRIPTION

As part of the exhibition “The UFA – History of a brand” in the German Cinematheque, the walk-in film A WHOLE LIFE celebrates its premiere. The production was first presented at VR Now Con and after GATEWAY TO INFINITY is the second case of its kind, produced by UFA Technology and UFA LAB. In the VR Experience A WHOLE LIFE we follow the actress Maria (played by Franziska Brandmeier) through the history of cinema. We experience the first filming of the early film in the 1920s in a walk-in world. In the course of the VR experience, the viewer observes how technical tricks and illusions were used to seduce the audience even then. Surprisingly, however, this set world turns out to be only a deceit – because Maria takes the viewer on a journey through German film history. Besides Franziska Brandmeier, Herbert Knaup will also be up for viewing in “close up”.
