Virtual Reality has spread its essence in almost every sector of life right from playing video games to watching videos and now it has taken one more step ahead and has left us spellbound. Virtual Reality has taken a step forward in the sector of film making and it is coming up with its first ever VR film in the religious genre.
Venice International Film Festival is going to screen a 40-minute promo of Jesus VR- The Story of Christ which will be the first ever feature-length movie that will be made entirely for virtual reality. This movie will feature the whole life of Jesus, right from his birth to his resurrection. Jesus VR will reflect the story of 2000 years back, and will follow Jesus of Nazareth through his entire life, as it is told by Bible. It will also display the events of the life Jesus like “the Sermon on the Mount, the Last Supper, the crucifixion, and the resurrection”.
The entire film will be shot in Matera, Italy, entirely in virtual reality 4k 360-degree; this location is also the location for “Passion of the Christ”. This movie will be released majorly on all the VR platforms including Google Cardboard, Samsung Gear, Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR, and the HTC VIVE.
This will be a huge step that Venice Film Festival will take towards showcasing the virtual reality in a religious genre featuring the first ever film Jesus VR- The Story of Christ.
