4. Defrost (Mobile VR)

In this virtual reality film, you are taken on a sci-fi adventure into the future. The experience begins with you sitting in wheelchair, being pushed down a hospital hallway by a nurse. A doctor walks slowly alongside, calmly explaining that you have been frozen for the past 30 years and are still regaining your ability to speak. You’re frustrated by not knowing where you are and not being able to communicate. You finally enter a room, where you are greeted by your family — who’ve almost become strangers. Your husband, daughter, and son gather around you saying how much they loved and missed you. It is an overwhelming experience and moved some participants to tears.
