Johan Knattrup Jensen joins Pustnik for the Virtual Reality Storytelling workshop

24.05.2016

Johan Knattrup Jensen was born on July 4, 1979 in Odder, Denmark. He is a director and writer, known for Verdenssøn (2012), Gaden (2003) and The Doghouse (2014).

The Doghouse which sits somewhere between being defined as a film screening and an art installation invites viewers to step into a virtual world for an immersive, first person film experience which, rather ironically, has a lot to do with connecting with reality and those around us.

Sitting around a table wearing a pair of goggles, each viewer is transported to the scene of a dinner party, in which they assume the role of one of five characters: five members of a family. The story unfolds, with each viewer experiencing it from a different perspective. The experience is realised through the use of Oculus Rift, a still emerging yet groundbreaking technology, which offers up a whole new way of experiencing film.

Johan’s The Doghouse has been selected for the first-ever Virtual Reality Days programme to take place at Cannes Film Market in May 2016.
