Dexter Studio (CEO: Kim Yong-hwa) will showcase “White Rabbit,” the company’s latest VR cinema content developed using in-house technology, at the “VR Summit” co-hosted by the US-based global media giant Rising Media (previously MecklerMedia) and KINTEX that will get under way alongside “RoboUniverse” and the “Global Sensor Forum.”
The VR Summit, where Dexter Studio will demonstrate “White Rabbit,” will be held at the KINTEX exhibition hall in Ilsan over the course of three days (June 29~30). This year’s event will feature more than 25 speakers from 11 countries, and offer more than 25 sessions.
Developed and created by Dexter Studio, “White Rabbit” is a VR cinema adventure inspired by “Alice in Wonderland” by Louise Carroll. It stars actor Da-bin Jung, who became a media sensation as a child for her work as the “ice cream girl.”
An official from Dexter Studio said, “White Rabbit was produced by synthesizing a 3D photo-realistic plate onto a game engine. We chose this production technique because we wanted to create content that delivered an interactive experience, rather than just a 360-degree video viewing experience, with White Rabbit. We also wanted users to feel the appeal VR has. It was our attempt to overcome what we call an ‘Uncanny Valley’ in gaming environments.”
He added, “To follow up White Rabbit, we plan to continue our work on producing VR cinema content using Dexter Studio’s unique technology and capacity to develop new content. We’re currently planning and developing content with Director Jason Kim, who directed ‘Midnight Runners,’ Director Chang Hyung-yun, who directed ‘The Satellite Girl and Milk Cow,’ and Director Yoon Hye-ryeong, who directed ‘How to Cross the Galaxy.’ On top of that, we’re running a public competition for VR cinema content as well.”
Meanwhile, “White Rabbit’ is available at the “Virtual Island” located inside Shinsegae Department Store Centum City. “Virtual Island” attracted more than 30,000 visitors in its first month of business.
