Prepare yourself to take a stroll from the winter sidewalks of Park City and down 8 mile Road in Detroit Michigan and into the heart of the city of Detroit with Eminem AKA Marshall Mathers, AKA Slim Shady. In a new 3D, 360-degree VR experience premiering at the Sundance Film Festival in January, the viewer has the epic and breakthrough opportunity to join Eminem and Sway Calloway for a 21-minute night ride through Detroit while listening to Eminem give his views on life in the Motor City.
You never know if Eminem plans to be on good behavior and so you’ve been warned, you might find yourself in the head of Eminem, right next to the intimate thoughts of the genius writer and that could be a scary place to be. Or, maybe you might just have a chill ride with one of Michigan’s finest, exploring one of the greatest cities in America.
Produced in a partnership between Facebook Oculus and Felix & Paul Studios, “Marshall from Detroit” is one of two VR Experiences produced by Felix and Paul Studios that have the privilege of premiering at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival. Félix Lajeunesse, co-founder and creative director of Felix & Paul Studios said “We are honored to be premiering our work at Sundance for the 5th year in a row and thrilled that both ‘Marshall from Detroit’ and ‘Traveling While Black’ are part of the official selection this year. While they differ from one another in style and story, both of these immersive experiences share a common theme—a unique glimpse into life in America in the past, present, and future.”
Immerse yourself in a day in the life of black America and learn about safe spaces in the 20-minute, 3D, 360-degree virtual reality documentary, Traveling While Black. Directed by Academy Award winner Roger Ross Williams and co-directed by Ayesha Nadarajah, Traveling While Black is a VR experience offering much needed insight and understanding for non-black Americans on what it might be like to live in black America. Traveling While Black is co-produced by Felix & Paul Studios in collaboration with Facebook’s Oculus and will be premiering as part of the Sundance Film Festival New Frontier Program.
