These two group interactive VR experiences pushed the limits of what’s been done in the VR space. Beyond-FX joined WEVR as a full-service VFX department, working collaboratively with their engineers, designers, and creative/art directors to craft an experience that is truly memorable for participants at their locations around the world.
Due to the nature of VR, and the ‘group interaction’ requirements - optimization and testing in context were at the heart of everything we created. From flying through storm clouds that span across an entire environment to casting spells with physical wands held by the players, the entire production team often found ourselves puzzling and experimenting, with way too many laughing experiences as we all attempted things that just didn’t work.
In the end, this became a multi-year production in which we were proud to support the WEVR team across their hurdles in both periods of full-time engagement, as-needed support, and a few fun short engagements for marketing content and polish across the finish line.
