A journey through memories.
A story of lost love.
A groundbreaking room-scale VR experience.
Based on a true story
“Our memory is a more perfect world than the universe: it gives back life to those who no longer exist.” ― Guy de Maupassant
VESTIGE is an award-winning, room-scale VR creative documentary that uses multi-narrative and volumetric live capture to take the viewer on a journey into the mind of Lisa as she remembers her lost love, Erik. Within an empty void, fragments of past memories appear of their life together. As we navigate the space to explore these moments, new memories are triggered revealing new pathways through the story. Over time the memories become entangled with a haunting vision and eventually lead us to the shocking moment of Erik’s death. Every viewing will reveal a different journey towards this moment, revealing the complex world of memory and grief.
The VR experience received its World Premiere at Tribeca Film Festival 2018, NYC. This was a special event as Lisa was returning home for the first time since Eriks death and was the first person to experience VESTIGE and had family and friends in attendance. RYOT put together a short micro-doc to capture this emotional journey for everyone.
VESTIGE has screened at over 20+ festivals around the world and won many awards. It is now available for home VR users who have a Oculus Rift, HTC Vive or Microsoft Mixed Reality VR HMD.
