We are a full service VR studio,
we also design our own VR editing platform.
Pseudoscience Pictures is an immersive film production company based in Los Angeles, California. Using an innovative and proprietary editing process, Pseudoscience allows filmmakers to create fully immersive VR experiences through multiple viewpoints.
Formed by independent filmmakers Josh Gladstone and Daniel Kaminsky - Pseudoscience Pictures was born out of a passion for emerging VR technologies and a frustration with the lack of engaging cinema in the burgeoning medium. With a homebrew ethic, the two developed their own VR production methodology and unique editing system by modifying available technologies and incorporating techniques from film theory.
Pseudoscience is continuing to develop its technologies and approaches and hopes to inspire and educate other filmmakers about the possibilities of interactive storytelling.
The short horror film, The Presence, is the first production from Pseudoscience Pictures. The story follows four characters through a séance gone wrong. It is a proof-of-concept film illustrating Pseudoscience’s two approaches to VR storytelling: active and reactive.
In the active version the viewer is able to move around freely through multiple viewpoints - discovering different threads of a larger plot in a method inspired by live, immersive theatre. The other version, reactive, waits for the viewer's gaze to discover the next shot organically - allowing the filmmaker to tell a story through an audience's natural curiosity.
