Stereoscopic VR 180, Resolution: 5760x2880; Ambisonic + Head-Lock Stereo Audio


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.
