Los Angeles, CA 1/22/16 — The Winners of Samsung’s “There in 60 Seconds” Gear Indie Challenge were announced by Fast Company & VRScout this morning. Among the five winners was Spliced Films with their piece ‘En Pointe’.
"After being cut from the ballet, a young woman stays late at the theater and dreams of her perfect performance."
Each of the five winners receive $10,000 and will have their work shown immediately on the Indie Winners section of Samsung’s MilkVR app, as well as this week at the Sundance Film Festival.
With this win, Spliced Films announces a new sister company, Spliced VR. Moving forward, Spliced VR will be leading the way with Cinematic VR Experiences.
Their next VR Short, ‘Real’, is slated to release soon as a stand alone app for the Oculus Rift.
