My Thoughts:
As you can see from my video a very emotional experience and one we need to always remember.

Game/Experience details:
Whilst questions about why the fire happened, who is to blame and what will happen next have barely been out of the news since last June, little is known about the people who called Grenfell Tower their home. Even less is understood about what it was like to live there, how people came to call it their home and what they have lost.

Grenfell: Our Home is a bold and innovative virtual reality film, which goes beyond the news headlines to bring to life survivors' stories. It offers a powerful, moving and genuinely original perspective as well as a sensitive and respectful record of what happened.

This film combines documentary interviews shot in 360 video with computer-generated animation to focus on important events and poignant every-day moments of the residents' lives. The documentary allows viewers to visualise and experience the survivors' memories of life before the fire.

The film was directed by Parable's Creative Director, Jonathan Rudd and executive produced by David Wise. The animation was designed and created by the award-winning 59 Productions and the music composed by the acclaimed Icelandic composer, Biggi Hilmars.

David Wise, Parable's CEO, said: 'Virtual Reality is often described as 'the empathy tool' for its ability to immerse and engage viewers so intensely in other people's stories and other worlds. The combination of 360 video and beautiful animation enables the telling of this important story in a way that no other medium can match'.

Siobhan Sinnerton, Commissioning Editor added: 'Innovation lies at the core of Channel 4's remit so we are delighted to be exploring new and interesting ways to deliver the very best storytelling and journalism. We hope this piece gives our audience a truly unique perspective on what the Grenfell community was like before the fire.'

This experience if viewed in VR for some UK viewers who lived through that or saw it on TV irl would be like the ones watching the VR version of World Trade Center of NYC, US in 2001 plane crash..

PlayToPlay says:

does it work good with 2 sensors or should i buy a third one with it

FrostPix says:

Honestly if this sort of experience gets better and expands into tv shows etc this could replace TV's for people who dont use tech much but tv's only and it could replace it for everyone too
