A gripping two part series following Alex Honnold around his stomping grounds in the US before taking you to the high mountains of the European Alps. Alex Honnold: The Soloist VR is a ground-breaking VR production using the latest in high resolution 3D 360° capture in some of the most remote and wildest locations possible. From the director and Producer of Everest VR : Journey to the Top of the World , this experience brings you right by Alex’s side as he solos thousands of feet above the ground. In Episode 1 of Alex Honnold: The Soloist VR, viewers begin by getting to know Honnold, before following him to Yosemite National Park, home of the famed El Capitan, and Red Rocks. Viewers are then brought to Europe where Honnold teams up with Swiss climber and Red Bull athlete Nicolas Hojac to tackle some of the toughest climbs in the Dolomites.
The film is the result of two years of meticulous planning and crafting. What really sets it apart aside the visuals is the narrative. Leaning on the strenghts of VR we striped the entire experience down to the bare bones; you will find yourself fully immersed in a live action adventure- there is no voice over, and only minimal music. The end result is a far more intense and immersive experience because of it.
