GEIMU is a two time award winning live action VR180 Japanese sci-fi/action/horror film in stereoscopic 3D which takes place in a fictional medieval Japanese video game world.


Looking for a challenge, Emi, an impetious gamer enlists her pal Hiroshi to illegally hack her VR game console together with her AI device so that she can play in a fully AI created VR game world. At first it appears to be a typical RPG (role playing game) set in medieval Japan with plenty of action, but bizarre events begin to take place, and she gets separated from Hiroshi. Will Emi prevail and escape with her life or does the AI have other plans...?


When AI gets medieval on you.

GEIMU was written, directed, produced and edited by Dorian Goto Stone and was made possible by the Google and VR Scout VR180 Lab. Over 50 local cast and crew were involved in the production, and decades of collective experience with Japanese period pieces went into creating a compelling medieval Japanese game world. From the sword choreography to the wardrobe to the props and spoken language, details were meticulously chosen to create a period piece that would be satisfying to both a local Japanese audience as well as a global one. 

The lead (Emi) is played by Aimi Sekiguchi, a VR artist and YouTuber who performs at major events throughout the world who is frequently featured on Japanese television. Her costar (Hiroshi) is played by Katsuyuki Miyake (Asaikikaku Talent Agency), an actor in television, film and theatre.
