menlo park - Oculus closes his Story Studio, where virtual reality films were made. That has revealed Jason Rubin of Oculus in a blog on the Facebook daughter's website.
The studio was set up two years ago, according to Rubin, to prove that real-time storytelling is possible. The studio then made some innovative short VR films. Now, however, a large number of filmmakers and developers are committed to the narrative VR art form, it has been decided to shift the focus to supporting external production, Rubin indicates.
Last year, the company pulled out $ 250 million to finance developers' VR content from all over the world. This included games such as Robo Recall and Rock Band VR. Of the 250 million, now 50 million are set aside, which is intended specifically for experimental VR content that does not focus on games.
