Virtual Reality

ABE: An Original VR Short Film

ABE VR is a cinematic VR experience based on the multi-award-winning short film, by Rob McLellan, and is the first ever virtual reality experience to be officially certified by the British Board of Film Classification.

Created in Unreal Engine, ABE is a virtual recreation of the original short film about a misguided robot seeking the unconditional love of humans… at whatever cost.

The film explores the emotional connection and heightened sense of empathy that VR delivers as a storytelling medium – using new techniques to enhance the feeling of presence, such as the eye tracking between ABE and us as a character.

“It’s the psychological potential of VR film as a storytelling platform that Hammerhead’s creation manages to convey so well.”
