A new trailer has been released for a 360-degree, virtual reality documentary about rapper Eminem.
The film, entitled Marshall From Detroit will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, and has been directed by Caleb Slain.
At just 21 minutes long, the film follows Marshall Mathers on a night time car journey through the streets of Detroit. Eminem gives the viewer a personal, reflective tour through the town that gave him everything.
The immersive piece of cinema is produced by Felix & Paul Studios, who say that they specialise in ‘creating unparalleled virtual reality, augmented reality and mixed reality experiences for audiences worldwide’.
They’ve previously experimented with techniques such as stop-motion video and time lapse recording. Now, they intend to take the viewer on a journey through the dark streets of Detroit with Slim Shady – an equally bizarre and inventive premise.
“We wanted to take the ‘reality’ out of VR and cook it down into something more unreal, but also truthful.” Director Slain told Variety.
While the film will premiere at Sundance this coming Saturday, it will be released next month and available to those lucky enough to own either of Facebook’s Oculus Go or Rift VR headsets.
