Virtual Reality Film
An Official Selection of the Tribeca Film Festival, EXTRAVAGANZA mixes 3D animation and live action footage in a short immersive satire. When the viewer puts on the VR headset they become a puppet trapped in a stunningly offensive puppet show.
Instead of a consumer, they find themselves in the novel position of “consumed”, subjected to insults by their audience and confronted with many of mainstream entertainment’s blind spots and prejudices. Can technology change society for the better, or does it just magnify our worst traits in new ways? Starring Paul Scheer and John Gemberling.
