Quebec’s first virtual reality video creation contest – Montréal 3/60 – was designed to spotlight the talented 360° experience creators of tomorrow. In September 2016, three of the some thirty teams who submitted proposals were selected to participate in a three-month residency at Valtech, during which they would create a 360° work on the theme of “Montreal of the future.”
The short film In/Future by the Mythologi team (Alejandro Figueroa, Ian Cameron, Jon Yu, Qarim Brown, and Bruno Pucella) was declared the winner. According to Pierre Friquet, jury chair and immersive filmmaker, In/Future is characterized by its profundity: “The richness of the dialogue on multiculturalism, the gestures of the speakers, and the spatial composition create a sense of intimacy and engagement in the viewer.”
The other jury members were Nancy Eperjesy (founder of Mettle), Audrey Pacart, George Fok (Creative Director at the Phi Centre), and Jean-François Tremblay (evangelist for augmented and virtual reality at Valtech).
