Practical Magic Produces 'Save Every Breath: The Dunkirk VR Experience'

"What's most interesting about the just over five minute experience is the choice to focus on heavy imagery rather than fast-paced, chaotic action." 7/10/2017 3:30 PM Eastern

The Dunkirk VR Experience, developed by Practical Magic and Warner Bros., takes viewers "on a dark and intense journey through a bloody WWII battle spanning land, sea and air," explains Kyle Melnick.

"What's most interesting about the just over five minute experience is the choice to focus on heavy imagery rather than fast-paced, chaotic action to represent the dire mood of the full film. Slow-motion shots of soldiers killed in action sinking into dark waters, the first-person perspective of a pilot as he crashes into the ocean, a group of desperate soldiers routinely preparing for incoming fire. These moments are made all the more impactful by their choice to trade in action for tone." To read more about the project, click here.

"The world Christopher Nolan created for Dunkirk played right into the strengths of VR," says Matthew Lewis, president of Practical Magic. "It's relentless storytelling with the enemy always a breath away. We knew exactly how we wanted to bring that into VR—to put you right there in that moment."
