Step inside VR animation Hoodoo


If you’ve ever dreamed of stepping into Toy Story, this could be the VR experience for you.

Animation studio Blue Zoo demonstrated its interactive virtual reality film for BusinessCloud video reporter Tristan Hall at the Manchester Animation Festival.

Hoodoo tells the story of a cat called Claw who climbs mountain Hoodoo and awakens a yeti.

The user, wearing a HTC Vive headset, influences the flow of the film through actions such as picking up objects and throwing them.

Tom Box, co-founder and producer at Blue Zoo, says Hoodoo is a “mixture of a game and story” and is the brainchild of a trainee storyboard artist at the multi BAFTA-winning studio.
