360° Chase Animation Short - Opo's Small Adventure

Watch video in VR

A chubby, loveable Opossum takes a bite of a magic mushroom and has to face his greatest fears.

It is highly recommended to watch the video through virtual reality glasses! It's worthwhile :-)

- Opo's Small Adventure is a cartoon chase animation short.
- The short film was designed for a room installation.
- Therefore we used 5 screens that are arranged in a semicircle and the spectator is in the middle.
- The animation short run over all screens and we use surround sound to guide the viewer.
- 2D/3D Mixed Animation.
- Loopable animation.
- To present "Opo's Small Adventure" we used a 360 degree GoPro Rig to record the whole room installation. At the same time, the animated short film was shown over the five Samsung TVs.
