Glimpse is an animated interactive VR experience starring Taron Egerton (Rocketman) and Lucy Boynton (Bohemian Rhapsody), and directed by Academy Award winning writer/director Benjamin Cleary and XR creator Michael O’Connor.
A highly emotive visual feast set in the imaginative mind of a heartbroken panda named Herbie (Egerton) who has recently broken up with his girlfriend Rice (Boynton). Herbie is an illustrator and using his art we delve back through the memories of his relationship from the heartbreaking end to the beautiful beginning; a dreamlike voyage through his mind, his heart and his illustrations.
A preview of Glimpse (a simplified 5 minute introduction to the experience) was presented in competition for Best Interactive at Venice Film Festival in August 2019, receiving considerable press and public attention. The same preview was awarded Best UK Experience at Raindance Film Festival 2019. The full experience will world premiere in 2020.
