Goliath is a powerful VR documentary experience about how a man lost his mind and found it again through the virtual world of social gaming.
In development, with the support of the Venice Biennale VR Academy and Creative XR (Digital Catapult).
Goliath invites you into the vivid and real world of Daniel who was diagnosed with Paranoid Schizophrenia as a young man, and spent a decade in a mental institution.
The experience takes us viscerally into the two worlds he inhabits. In the world of his delusions he believes that he is ravaged by a toxic virus which brings harm to all who make contact with him. In another world he is a an inspiring commander who leads an international band of misfits into daily victories in social online game of World of Tanks.
Through candid first-person interviews, mesmerising animated recreations and a sleight of hand that brings participants personally into the story, Goliath is a timely work about the real power of unreal realities.
Goliath is currently in development.
