Immersive video technologies are a new stage in the history of cinema and audiovisual art. Let's create impressive works together.
Virtual Cinema Laboratory
«Tolstoy and Turgenev»
Commissioned by the Institute for Internet Development (IRI) in collaboration with Moviestart and Bazelevs studios, we made a 3-episode historical educational mini-series in virtual reality format (VR video 360) in 2020 about Lev Tolstoy and Ivan Turgenev. The series was filmed in St. Petersburg and Yasnaya Polyana. Of course, it's best to watch in a VR helmet, but it will be cool on the screen of your smartphone.
Fragments from different series
The video is presented in VR format. You can rotate it with the mouse, or if you are watching from a mobile device, then through the YouTube app.
You can download this fragment to watch it on your VR device.
