Future Lighthouse is co-producing with Sony Entertainment the Snatch experience, the new Crackle series based on the movie Snatch: Pigs and Diamonds.
Future Ligthouse and Sony Entertainment they are preparing the launch of Snatch VR, a virtual reality experience from the series Snatch which premiered on the online network Crackle. The series, based on Guy Ritchie’s film Snatch: Pigs and Diamonds, is about a group of twenty-something fraudsters who come across a truck loaded with stolen gold bars and decide to enter the world of organized crime betting where they will try to earn as much money as possible based on deceptions.
The six-minute virtual reality experience puts you squarely in the robbery of a safe with the protagonists of the series, with Rupert Grint among them. The piece was recorded in Manchester over four days, using different stereoscopic techniques. During the episode, viewers will have to crack the code of the safe before they are caught.
“We are very pleased to have co-produced this piece with Future Lighthouse, creating this experience for fans of the series,” he commented Courtney Iago, digital development manager for Sony Entertainment. “We believe that virtual reality is of vital importance for the entertainment industry, that’s why we decided to do this with Nicolás Alcalá and his team, who have been creating very interesting experiences since last year.”
“In virtual reality, the user has a controllability that has not been seen before. Our goal is to transport you with Rupert Grint and the other actors so that you feel the adrenaline rush of a grand theft,” he comments Nicolás Alcalá, CEO of Future Lighthouse and co-director of the piece with Rafael Pavón. The post-production was carried out by Entropy Studio.
The experience, Snatch VR, will be available on PlayStationVR, Gear VR and Daydream starting next June.
