(Via PRNewswire) Trinity, the first live-action interactive film project shot in virtual real-
ity, has begun production, announces Montreal VR production studio Unlimited. It’s a sci-fi adventure set in a futuristic world, where the viewer is immersed in the action and every decision affects the outcome of the story. Trinity will be available in December on Google Play, iTunes, Samsung, Microsoft, Sony and Oculus. “Virtual reality is an amazing new medium, a complete platform shift really. It compares to the dawn of cinema and television or more recently, the internet. That’s how huge it will be.” said John Hamilton, President and Co-founder of Unlimited. The company is partnering with Canadian Media Fund (CMF) and Rex Media Capital on this project.
