Emmy award winning and Oscar-nominated, Pearl, is a 360 VR story that follows a girl and her dad as they crisscross the country in their beloved hatchback, chasing their dreams. It’s a story about the gifts we hand down and their power to carry love—and about finding grace in the unlikeliest of places.
Pearl, produced as both a theatrical film and a 360 VR story, is a linear narrative with different audience experiences. In the theatrical adaptation, the camera and pacing are directed and authored, while the 360 VR piece allows the audience agency over the narrative. Produced by Google Spotlight Stories, Pearl is one of the first stories to be told in both theaters and VR.
