Tips & tricks learned on the set of “Horizon Hipsters”

Here is a great behind-the-scenes video/tutorial about filming in the metaverse. Jay (Film Sensei) included my speech during the wrap party about VR-specific acting techniques.

“The Horizon Hipsters” Film Premieres

January 14, 2022

Film Sensei Productions has premiered The Horizon Hipsters, a short experimental film shot entirely in virtual reality. I helped Jay Haynes and Aaron Sorrels write the screenplay, and I starred in the lead male role through my “Vulture667” Horizon Worlds avatar.

By using the Horizon Worlds building tools and its shared VR experience, this film represents a new method for no-cost motion capture and location scouting, plus a convenient way to coordinate filming with actors not in the same location. I look forward to more such projects with Film Sensei Productions this year.

Without further ado, here is The Horizon Hipsters!
