Jaqueline Viana, also a contributor in the Brazilian Magazine – Revista Mundo 360 will participate on October 26, 2017 in one of the biggest Virtual Reality Festivals (VR) in the World – VR Days in Amsterdam, Netherlands, where she will present: “Give me your BIS – a short film filmed in 360º. It is not only a VR film besides a manifesto that proposes the reflection of organ donation.
Jaqueline explains that she thought of “… your BIS” (excerpt from the song “Pro dia Nascer Feliz” of Dead Brazilian singer – Cazuza) to metaphorize the continuity of life.
The production had a special moment that the director officialized an application and obtained the authorization of a hospital to record a transplant and it presents in the short, a heart being removed from the dead body of a boy of 14 years who committed suicide and his family consented the donation of all its organs and tissues. *
This project was attended by friends of Jaqueline who moved by the cause, assisted and performed the production outside of studios and didn’t count on expensive equipment, only with the resources of her and the goodwill of the people, professionals and institutions involved that also decided help and work in knowing the director’s conception.
Enthusiast of Virtual Reality, Jaqueline already had the trip scheduled for the Festival and decided to take the film to compete in 3 categories:
- Best Upcoming Talent;
- Best for the Soul; and
- Best Narrative Fictional Experience
The winners will be announced at the VR Days 2017 Night Award on Thursday, October 26, 2017.
