Be prepared to take a stroll down 8 mile and through the city of Detroit, Michigan with Eminem AKA Marshall Mathers, AKA Slim Shady, in a new 3D, 360-degree VR experience premiering at the Sundance Film Festival in January. Join Eminem and Sway Calloway for a 21-minute night ride through Detroit and listen as Eminem gives his views on the Motor City. And you’ve been warned, you just might find yourself in the head of Eminem, right next to the intimate thoughts of the genius writer.
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.
