I found the emphasis of future technology within the film industry fascinating within the blog post. VR is quickly becoming an integral part of all our futures, and as the technology and accessibility of it grows, it is definitely important to consider the impact it will have on an audience’s perspective.
I think there is a danger with integration into cinema, however, with misuse similar to 3D. The use of 3D was quick to become overly exposed during the 2010s, and it now holds the title of “gimmicky” when it comes to screening a film in 3D.
Hopefully the technology will not be misused, since it would definitely be incredibly interesting to watch a film in such an immersive setting. I also hope that the Kickstarter you donated to is able to set the path for a fascinating viewing experience!
