One of VR’s most striking documentaries just won itself an Emmy.
Zero Days VR, the 2017 experience that itself was based upon the larger Zero Days documentary, just won the award for Outstanding New Approaches: Documentary at last night’s 39th News & Documentary Emmy Awards. The experience beat out other entries like Time’s Finding Home piece and We Are Witnesses from The Marshall Project.
Developed by Scatter with the help of Oculus Studios, Zero Days VR shines a virtual spotlight on the issue of cyber warfare, recounting the story of the Stuxnet virus in a visually innovative way. As we hear from experts we see the virus do its work in the invisible ‘cyber realm’, creating a striking visual style. The 360-degree trailer above gives you an idea of what to expect.
VR is no stranger to the Emmys. Over the past few years experiences like Henry have walked away with awards throughout the institution’s various ceremonies.
Zero Days is available on Rift, Vive, Gear and Go for $4.99.
