Queerskins HOME is now live on VRChat–Is this the #future of #film? #VR #XR #Art #installation #interactive #game #storytelling?

Welcome home. Queerskins Home is LIVE. World #83614 in VRChat. Search #queer. Part art exhibition space, part 3D explorable story world. Due to constraints of VRChat, a free massive player social app, available for Oculus Quest, all tethered VR headsets and online PC, we do not have video (as does not support for Quest) nevertheless, I see the future of cinema here. It is like nothing I have ever experienced.

Of all the things Cyril Tsiboulski and I have made over the last ten years, this feels perfect–raw and unfinished and a gut punch. I know “Art” is pretty and/or cerebral and/or conceptual, but that is not what we made. So proud of it. Amazing lighting help from Unity engineering superstar Elliott Mitchell and architectural advice from Beom Jun Kim, and, of course, Cyril Tsiboulski who is my wonder twin, and created this in 4 days. Working together and on this project for close to ten years is what makes it so deep and so powerful. It took that kind of devotion…Thank you all.

Audio is a big part of this so please adjust by going to your settings on the menu and adjusting master, world sounds and people (other avatars around you) sound. Starting September 2nd, in conjunction with the premiere of Queerskins: ARK at The Venice International Film Festival, I will be leading daily tours with special guests Michael DeBartolo (who plays Sebastian) in Queerskins: ARK and Hadley Boyd (who plays Mary-Helen, his mother). She will be reading live from Sebastian’s diary. So follow us at Queerskins and @queerskins on Insta/Twitter to find out the day’s schedule.
