Patrick Boivin Directs Virtual Reality Sci-Fi Thriller

UNLTD VR is pleased to announce the start of shooting in Prague, Czech Republic of Trinity, a Virtual Reality thriller directed by Patrick Boivin (Iron Baby, Iggy Pop, LG, Lego, Google, Ford, Nike, Samsung, Marvel and DisneyPixar), from a screenplay by Randall Lobb, based on a story by John Hamilton. Once shooting has been completed in Prague, cast and crew will return to Montreal for the final stage of principal photography in early 2017.

Trinity is a live-action, interactive thriller set in Virtual Reality, a cinematic first in narrative story telling. Set 2000 years from now, in a future where humans have long been extinct, the last surviving androids fight a final war for freedom against an all powerful Singularity, their God…

Trinity is produced by UNLTD partners John Hamilton (eOne Entertainment, Seville Pictures) and Robert Boulos (The Lion King 3D, Life of Pi), with line-producer Viktor Mara of Bistro Films handling the Czech portion of the shoot. UNLTD partner Sébastien Gros returns as director of photography/stereography/VR.

UNLTD will also be using its pioneering Nucleus 3D and Sputnik VR camera technology for the shoot, developed specifically by UNLTD to meet the unique needs of shooting for Virtual Reality.

Production and development partners on Trinity include The Canada Media Fund, Rex Media Capital, Frima Studio, Dpt., Unity and D-Box Technologies.

Trinity is set for release summer 2017.

Developer Blair Renaud has confirmed that there’s more to come with a ‘huge expansion’ set to bring Oculus Touch compatibility to the videogame later this year.

“TECHNOLUST is a science-fiction adventure that sets the player loose in a neon-soaked dystopian world. Throughout their journey the player will face numerous puzzles and encounter a variety of challenges, though the emphasis is strictly on exploration and mental taxation; TECHNOLUST is not a traditional first-person videogame experience, instead playing to the strengths of modern virtual reality (VR).”

“Oculus Touch is the as-yet-unreleased motion-control system for the Oculus Rift.”

Sur-Vie, la série de Martine D’anjou en tournage avec Pamela Anderson

Martine D’Anjou a travaillé avec Fabienne Larouche pour écrire la série de quatre épisodes.

L’émission est francophone, mais Raquel Rose, le personnage de Pamela Anderson, ne parlera qu’en anglais, avec des sous-titres, ce qui s’allie à la merveille avec le ton tout à fait décalé de la série de Martine D’Anjou.

On peut dire que Fabienne Larouche a fait un bon coup de casting avec Pamela Anderson qui joue l’animatrice d’une téléréalité.

En effet, la série, réalisée par Yves Christian Fournier, a pour prémisse une actrice, Frédérique Boileau (Mariloup Wolfe), qui a tenté sa chance aux États-Unis, et qui est boudée par les producteurs à son retour au Québec. Elle accepte de participer à une téléréalité avec son amoureux (Sébastien Huberdeau).

Luc Picard et Monia Chokri jouent les producteurs, et Anne-Marie Cadieux, l’auteure.
