Abstract

The emergence in recent years of consumer-accessible virtual reality (VR) technologies such as the Google Daydream, Oculus Rift and HTC Vive has led to a renewal of commercial, academic and public interest in immersive interactive media. Virtual reality non-fiction (VRNF) (e.g. documentary) is an emergent and rapidly evolving new medium for filmmaking that draws from - and builds upon - traditional forms of non-fiction, as well as interactive media, gaming and immersive theatre. In this paper, we present our ongoing work to capture and present the first comprehensive record of VRNF - a Mediography of Virtual Reality Non-Fiction - to tell the story of where this new medium has come from, how it is evolving, and where it is heading.
