Filming ‘Defrost,’ a sci-fi virtual reality drama that’s debuting at the Sundance Film Festival, was tough for the actors. In a new interview, actor Harry Hamlin explained that from their perspective, the main character of Joan was just ‘a black camera with eight eyes.’ Watch!

Defrost, a 12-episode virtual reality drama that is debuting at the Sundance Film Festival, is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. And that’s because while watching it, you’ll be looking through the eyes of Joan, the main protagonist in the series.

Defrost is a virtual reality project about a woman who has been frozen for thirty years, wakes up, and meets her family — her husband, her daughter, and the doctor who’s running the institute,” writer Randal Kleiser said in an interview at Sundance on Jan. 23.
