Overview

Idea

‘TOGETHER' is a VR experience about the power of human connection. The piece fuses dance and technology, putting the viewer in the middle of an emotional narrative about breaking down barriers and bringing people closer.

The experience was created in collaboration with director Terrence Malick, Academy Award-nominated cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto, movement artists Jon Boogz and Lil Buck, editors Ting Poo, Haines Hall, Rehman Ali, and composer Simon Franglen.

Working with 'Movement Art Is' co-founders Jon Boogz and Lil Buck, director Terrence Malick crafted an immersive, emotional experience that is brought to life through dance. In the words of Jon Boogz and Lil Buck, 'Dance isn't just entertainment, it's a tool to empower, educate and break down barriers. 'TOGETHER' is inspired by our original piece, 'No Borders', and was created to help start conversations and bring people closer.’

Execution

TOGETHER is a VR experience about the power of human connection. The piece fuses dance and technology, putting the viewer in the middle of an emotional narrative about breaking down barriers and bringing people closer.

The film showcases Facebook hardware and software tools that provide the next generation of technology for every director, cinematographer, and production company interested in top tier 360 filmmaking. When harnessed by some of the most respected auteurs in their craft – like Palme d’Or winning director Terrence Malick, Academy Award-nominated Rodrigo Prieto and Academy Award-winning Ting Poo – it becomes truly immersive storytelling.

In turn, the making of this film informed Facebook camera and software development in the areas of 24-camera stitching, low light sensitivity, depth mapping, error mapping, and lens-to-performer distance. This project was truly a case of aesthetic filmmaking informing technical innovation, and vice versa.

The 360 film was an official selection at the Sundance Film Festival and Tribeca Film Festival. It has since been invited to screen at international festivals in 13 other countries.
