Alt.vfx takes a VR Trip to Turkana for Oxfam’s Evelyn’s Story

23 August, 2017,

The VR production team at Alt.vfx in Sydney recently produced a 360-degree short film documentary for Oxfam, created as a dramatic story about the people of Turkana, Kenya, who are currently living in conditions of extreme drought in a remote region. This project was a finalist in the 360 VR category at the AEAF Awards.

Developed in conjunction with the director Dave Denneen from production company Filmgraphics, the film shows the life and hardships of the Turkana villagers through the eyes of Evelyn, an 11-year-old school girl who acts as the narrator. It is notable for the way it combines film language with the 360 medium to tell this story showing Oxfam’s work bringing clean water to remote areas, written to move people to donate to a worthy charity.
