What if you could take the experience of attending a music festival and turn it into virtual reality? With VR technology continuing to evolve and improve, this shouldn’t seem that outlandish of an idea. In fact, the creators of Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey want to do exactly this with Wacken Open Air, the world’s largest metal music festival.
Banger Films will be at the massive festival to film their latest project: Wacken VR. This fully-immersive metal festival also needs input from fans, so Banger is searching for passionate metal fans attending the festival who are willing to be interviewed.
Director Sam Dunn comments: “Ten years ago we made the first in-depth doc on heavy metal music and cultre with Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey. Well, now it’s time for another first at Banger: Creating metal’s first narrative VR experience. And since metal fans are the heart of metal culture, we need fans to send us their videos and help us tell this story”.
If you’re attending Wacken and would live to be interviewed, you can submit a video explaining what the festival means to you by uploading it to YouTube and putting “Wacken WR – Fan Search” in the title.
