Canadian production company Cream Productions, which has developed many series, including The Story of Late Night for CNN, is pushing into VR.
Cream Productions is starting virtual reality sci-fi drama Dark Threads. The drama is an interactive and immersive experience that lets gamers start on a fantastical journey of consciousness.
The series will feature the avatar of Lord of the Rings and Lost star Dominic Monaghan and will see gamers drop into a future environment to portray their personal narratives.
Kandyse McClure from Battlestar Galactica will also feature in the series, which will launch on July 22, 2021, and will be made available for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
Ontario Creates, the Canada Media Fund, and Cream Productions are funding Dark Threads. Executive producers include Kate Harrison Karman, Dominic Monaghan, David Brady, Johnny Kalangis, Tristan Cezair, Andrew MacDonald, and Dan Magnus.
It marks Cream Productions’ first venture into interactive drama production, and it also has many virtual and augmented reality projects in development for the future.
“Dark Threads is a VR adventure that compels players to consider the essence of consciousness, altruism, cruelty, and life itself. The experience is like a multiple-choice scripted series with three distinctly mysterious endings; each option directly affects the finale.” – Johnny Kalangis, Head of Digital, Cream Productions.
