    We're thrilled to begin our BOSCPUG Fall Series with our special virtual reality event on Giant. Come learn about the making of this cinematic virtual reality experience from it's creators Milica Zec and Winslow Porter.

    Trapped in an active war-zone, two parents struggle to distract their young daughter by inventing a fantastical tale. Inspired by real events, this immersive virtual-reality experience, which mixes both game engine and live-action video, transports the viewer into the family's makeshift basement shelter.

    Giant had its world premiere at 2016 Sundance Film Festival New Frontier, and its European premiere at Cannes Film Festival where it garnered strong emotional responses from both the general public and the press.
