The VR piece HUSH (Danish title: Havfolket Kalder Mørknet Vand) has been selected for the Gap Financing Market at Venice Film Festival 2019 as one of 12 VR projects .

Director Vibeke Bryld and producer Maria Kristensen will attend the Gap Financing Market from August 29 to September 2nd.

HUSH is a sensory VR experience and installation thatthat lets you be the subject of a Northern myth. We beckons you into a mythological underwater land born out of the harsh seas and plains of Thy, a rural region in the North of Denmark, where superstition abounds and the powers of nature rule.

The piece serves as both a stand-alone VR experience and a companion piece to the documentary/hybrid film THYLAND (also directed by Vibeke Bryld and produced by Heidi Elise Christensen for Final Cut for Real - currently in postproduction). Both the film and the VR experience are born out of the harsh seas and plains of Thy, a rural region in northern Denmark, where superstition abounds and the powers of nature rule supreme.

HUSH will be created in CGI under the supervision of CG Artist Lars Hemmingsen Nørgaard, with production design by Elin Maria Johansson. Both the film THYLAND and the VR piece HUSH are slated to premiere in Spring 2020.
