It’s yet another first in the booming business of virtual reality with a heart.
On Monday, VRJournal learned that TRICK 3D is rolling out a behind-the-scenes look at how the 3D animation and VR studio team granted the first-ever virtual reality wish.
The wish was granted in partnership with Make-A-Wish Georgia, Dobbins Air Force Base, OneOrbit and UP TV.
Inspired by the imaginative wish of one seven-year-old Georgia native, Zayden Wright, TRICK 3D produced a VR short that takes the young astronaut on a fantastical expedition to outer space – all based on Zayden’s own creative vision.
“This wish is huge, and it could only come from a brain like Zayden’s, which is so imaginative and inspiring,” said director Chad Eikhofff. “Virtual reality is inherently built for wishes and dreams, and this is a great example of VR making something possible that was previously unattainable. For us at TRICK 3D, building a world and experience for such a meaningful use at such a high level of production is 100 percent why we create.”
