Pre-Rendered Cinematic VR: Conscious Existence

Marc Zimmermann (Epicscapes)

Marc Zimmermann will present his latest project "Conscious Existence" giving an insight about his workflow and experiences with creating pre-rendered cinematic VR using Cinema4D and After Effects.

With his new virtual-reality experience ‘Conscious Existence’, Marc Zimmermann honors life’s most precious achievement: the conscious mind, which enables us to hold within us the universe's boundless beauty - a source of infinite inspiration that fuels our inner space. Being aware of and grateful for the invaluable fortune of a ‘Conscious Existence’ is vital for a life in harmony and enables us to use our precious gift within to sense that beauty in every little thing.

‘Conscious Existence’ has been produced as part of the VR NOW talent initiative of Animationsinstitut at Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg, funded by the Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts Baden-Württemberg and supported by the MFG Filmfunding. As first of its kind it can also be experienced as an interactive, collaborative VR Cinema, thanks to the support of evrbit and Samsung.
