The Turning Forest


World Premiere

U.K., Australia | 0 MINUTES | English |


In a land that never was and a time that could never be, a boy stared into the eyes of a fantastical creature. Around them, a magical forest; in front of them, a magical journey. The Turning Forest is a real-time CG VR experience for people young and old— inviting audiences into a magical space of imagination, where rustling leaves are also the footsteps of something familiar, yet strange. In this place things are not quite what they seem. Oscar Raby has created a beautiful and artful way of working in VR that has deservedly brought him many accolades internationally.
