We are happy to announce our new guidelines for the project SHTETL VR are competed.
This is an important step towards our goal for realizing the project!
SCHIELE XR_Proof of concept
In summer we shot the first test of our new project. Now it is ready to be shown. We want to know, what you like about the project, what we could improve, or is there something we forgot about?
We invite you to preview SCHIELE XR in our office on Sat. October 31st, 2020 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Please let us know when you will be coming, so we can schedule the event and avoid waiting times to comply COVID 19 restrictions.
Looking forward seeing you,
We are happy to announce that we started our production of „Schiele XR“.
It will be an interactive experience, where the painter Schiele is telling stories of
his life - always a little different - according to your answers!
You will witness memorable scenes of the artist's life, both from his childhood
and adult age.
For now we filmed a test with our amazing cast for our proof of concept.
We want to know if our ambitious idea works out!
Thank you Andrea Nitsche, Arwen Hollweg and Martin Muliar!!
And of course to our Egon Schiele Jan Hutter.

IVRPA TOKYO 2018
Thanks to the insistence of Michael Kolchesky we became part of IVRPA Tokyo 2018.
It was a close-knit circle of VR and 360° lovers, who
loved to exchange and share information. We met a lot of new people from
different continents in this really exotic and amazing city.
(Why is no food in Austria like over there??!!)
An article about BALLAVITA made it into the Cannes Market Daily!!
Amilux Film at NEXT, Cannes 2018
Our booth was a huge success. We presented the teaser for Ballavita and showcased the CINEMA XR.
Thanks to everyone, who dropped by.
The panel discussion Who is afraid of VR? was very interesting, thanks to
our panelists and the great questions from the audience.
In the midst of preparing our booth and panel for Cannes!

Dance rehearsals start next week!
Preparations for our virtual reality stereoscopic film BALLAVITA are on the way. Casting is completed and we are proud to announce that Bianca & Thomas Kraml and Haymon Maria Buttinger will be in our lead roles.
The construction of our camera rig is well under way. We will have a rig with 8 cameras. At the moment we are experimenting with different lenses.
We are designing all our sets in CG, because our film will be shot entirely in front of green screen at the NOISIA studios in Tullnerbach.
You can find more news and photos at our fb page BALLAVITA, which is being updated all the time!
BALLAVITA is a parable about VR. An old man is seeking for other people’s dreams. He is addicted to them, they are his drug. He is able to preserve them and “experience” them, whenever it pleases him. But this he can only do once. So he is always looking for new dreams.
He notices the argument between Anton and Maria, a young couple and he is able to separate them, so he can get hold of Maria’s dreams. But instead of dreams he finds something else…
!!! New Film!!! ***BALLAVITA***!!! New Film!!!
BALLAVITA is about dreams.
Maria is in love with Anton. They’ve already had their special moment, but she doesn’t quite know if it will last. They see each other again at a rehearsal of their dance company, a group of twenty-somethings who love to dance tango in their spare time. Maria is hopelessly overdressed in order to impress Anton. When their romantic encounter is exposed to the others, Anton gives Maria the cold shoulder. They argue; Maria runs away….
We will produce the film for our projection box and we shall try out everything which is possible… Cinema all around!
We start at the beginning of April!
