Take to the sea!Virtual reality
Have a seat, make yourself comfortable and literally step back into the past. A 360-degree-surrounding experience! Thanks to the technology of Oculus Quest 2!
It’s 1963 and you’re out on the water, far from land, in the company of two friendly Gaspé Peninsula fishermen: Thomas and Jos of Newport. With your movie camera, it’s your job to film the journey of a documentary film producer from Montréal who, although he’s seasick, wants to learn all about fishing techniques, the history of the Robins and especially, life aboard one of those legendary ships known as the Gaspésiennes. Beware of storms!
The film, Gaspésienne no 20, is an immersive journey and a unique experience featuring innovative technology!
Gaspésienne no 20
