VR MOVIE YOUR DREAM
FROM CLASSICAL ART FORMS TO INNOVATION
The interactive Virtual Reality film “Your dream” is a fourth-year cultural innovation for young artists that combines science and art to discover the resilient aesthetic and logical connection between science and art in the field of research using the possibilities offered by modern technology.
Based on the characteristics of dreams created during the analysis of the topic and artistic research, the 22-minute Virtual Reality film will look for artistic tools suitable for this format and capable of restoring dreamy reality.
The film combines the expressions of three cultural dimensions: traditional genres of performing arts (puppet theatre, contemporary dance, classical opera, dramatic acting), expressions of modern art (animation, green screen, spatial music, editing techniques, special video effects), innovative technologies ( virtual reality, interactivity and immersion) and joint teams of young theatre, film, animation and virtual reality creators are being created.
ONEIRIC INTERACTIVE DETECTIVE
The traditional dream of a childhood home and dinner with parents (which eventually turns into a nightmare), which is repeated very often in the dream survey, becomes a bridge between dream reality scenes that presupposes concrete dialogues and psychologized characteristic traits. develops perspectives on different K. G. Jung archetypes: Mother Archetype, Anima Archetype, Shadow Archetype, and Divine Child Archetype.
The dialogue of the first “HOME stage” and the time-loop, which develops the perspective of a different character, creates a dynamic rule of a narrative narrative that allows the viewer to see new, miraculous “new characters” and archetypes one after the other in an already familiar scene. The open rhetoric of the characters approaching the viewer encourages an analysis of the viewer’s personal relationship with his or her parents, his or her childhood memories, notions of masculinity or femininity, and his or her own psyche.
In the VR film “Your dream”, the viewer gets the opportunity to visit his dream and the animator Anima consciously travels to six dreamy self-reflection rooms, allowing him to think about the surrounding reality and himself. The journey begins with dinner in an abandoned house. Family members are deeply saddened by the enigmatically missing grandmother’s watch, which the viewer sees on her hand. At dinner when a faceless man joins, the situation changes. The mother and father praise the man and humiliate the viewer, causing a feeling of insecurity, jealousy and guilt. Anima interrupts the unpleasant dinner – by stopping the time, she shows that the viewer and the faceless are the same person. We all have a dark personality side that we don’t know.
The viewer enters the transitional space of the corridor, where he chooses the portal he wants to go to. At funerals, the viewer faces the fear of death, the mother’s archetype, the pursuit of respect, the fear of losing the mother. At a frantic party, the viewer faces erotic fears and shame. In the sandbox, the viewer watches the adopted members of his family and finds himself in a situation where the only one is an adult but no one listens to him. In the same box, a story is heard from the Divine Child that evokes memories of when we have to move from a carefree childhood to an independent adult world. The magical power of the clock to turn time turns out. Eventually, the spectator and his family find themselves at a poker table.
The meaning of all the details seen becomes clear and he realizes that time will not turn to a carefree childhood. It gives the viewer a sense of lightness due to the fact that there is no need to control time.
There are many things in reality that we cannot control and that is a blessing, because only through them does a carefree childhood still live in us. Anima takes over the management of time from the viewer. The viewer has the last minute to enjoy the unusual dreamy forms of time flow and the feeling of separation from the body until everything is flooded with red smoke.
