(Variety) Visual effects veteran Gil Baron and his co-conspirators have built Mindshow, an animated storytelling tool for VR that currently works with HTC’s Vive headset. Mindshow lets users easily pick avatars and record short skits by acting them out while wearing VR headsets. “If you tell stories in VR, you should do it from within VR,” said Baron.
The Mindshow software gives creators a number of avatars, sets and props choose from. “Everyone has the same set of virtual Legos,” said Ross. Scenes can be played out and edited over and over again, giving one creator the chance to play multiple characters. What’s more, any video shared within Mindshow can be remixed by the community, leading to recurring themes and running jokes.
