The new VR experience by Vrse studios and Annapurna Pictures immerse ourselves deep in the ocean, literally. Directed by Sandy Smolan and James Nestor, The Click Effect follows two marine scientists, Nestor and Smolan, in their free exploration of the depths of the ocean to research the communication skills of the dolphins. The result is a completely immersive film in which we join two adventurers diving 30 meters in apnea to capture as close as possible the communication of dolphins and sperm whales, the largest marine predators. It was filmed in the Cayman Islands, Reunion Island and the Indian Ocean.
The Click Effect is the first VR film of the new opinionated documentaries (Op-Docs) series of The New York Times curated by the Sundance Institute with the support from MacArthur Foundation.
Vrse is one of the biggest VR studios. Their creative team features filmmakers such as Chris Milk or Aaron Koblin, whose productions have been awarded practically every single award of the audiovisual industry, even Emmy, Grammy and Cannes prizes. Annapurna Pictures have produced some of the most successful independent films over the last few years such as ‘Her’, ‘American Hustler’, ‘Foxcatcher’ or ‘Spring Breakers’.
