The Kaleidoscope platform is created by the founders of Kaleidoscope, a community that supports the VR industry. They consistently hold showcases and festivals around the world. It is an invitation-only marketplace, where VR industry leaders are able to get exclusive first looks at new VR films, games and experiences available for pre-sales, licensing and partnership opportunities. It is created to help VR creators and studios raise funds needed to produce original content. We have been invited to join this collection of industry leaders, which will open up excellent opportunities for our interactive VR film, Sky Kraken.
“The biggest challenge to the future of virtual reality is funding,” said Rene Pinnell, co-founder and CEO of Kaleidoscope. “And we want to solve that problem. It’s a chicken-egg situation. Artists need funding to make killer content and funders need to prove there is a massive consumer market to sell to in order to justify their investment.”
“We need to fund projects today so that when the next generation of hardware is released we have a deep library of amazing content ready to go. Only then will the industry take off,” said Pinnell. (Upload VR 2017)
Our Sky Kraken teaser, which was released only two months ago, has generated thousands of native views, shares and interest. This is a great start for this new title in development, and is a strong indication of what the future holds – we can’t wait to see what will happen next!
“The creativity and quality of Sky Kraken naturally qualifies it for our platform and we are honoured to be featuring the work of The Pulse Originals, a ground-breaking Australian studio,” Rene commented.
Sky Kraken is currently seeking partners and investment to support its development and production.
