Virtual reality has taken a big step on the road to a recognized narrative form of the story. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced that it will present an Oscar Special Achievement Award for the Virtual Reality Experience "Carne y Arena" directed by director Alessandro González Irene. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences said that in order to "commend the visionary and powerful story narrative experience", the two Oscar-winning Enali figures and photographers Emmanuel Lubesky Oscar Special Achievement Award were awarded. This marks the first time that the VR media-based work has been recognized by the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and is the second Oscar Special Achievement Award since Pixar's "Toy Story" (1996).
"Carne y Arena" is designed to allow viewers to experience the hardships of refugees and immigrants through VR equipment such as VR box. This 6 and a half minutes of experience combines the physical space with the Oculus Rift presented by the VR image, such as a sand filled with floor and cold waiting room. When the audience wears VR Headset, they will enter a group of refugees trying to cross the Mexican border and experience the fear of the US border patrols and future uncertainties. The end of the story is a video, where the immigration of the official documents will tell the audience about their true story.
"The artistic art and cinematic experience of Ina Rita is an emotional and immersive adventure that takes us to the desert in the southwest of the United States at dawn," said John Bailey, chairman of the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, in a statement. Immortal reality is not just a breakthrough in emerging forms of innovation, it links us to the sensitive political and social realities of the Mexican - Mexican border.
"Carne y Arena" is currently being displayed at the Los Angeles Art Museum. As a director, Inari has directed the famous film "bird" and "remnants", and received a total of seven Oscar awards.
