A short film created by a team from Cluj in the Virtual Reality technique dedicated to the end of World War I can be seen at the exhibition "Romanians towards the Greater Union" at the National History Museum of Transylvania.
The film presents some historical data about the warring parties during World War I, but also a sequence that enters a soldier's intimate life, the correspondence with his wife, to show another side of the war.
What is impressive, however, in this film is the feeling of immersion into a certain temporal space that the viewer receives through VR technique.
"Together with the National History Museum of Transylvania, which is hosting an exhibition dedicated to the Centennial of the Greater Union, we present a 3D short film. It was made by a team of graphic artists here in Cluj with the support of our partners. The viewer is immersed into an environment that reproduces the atmosphere during the war. In an objective such as this museum, visitors can see real objects from a certain period of time but the technology begins to allow us to create the atmosphere of a certain era, in this case of World War I, and that can attract people to the museum, which we hope will happen more and more as of now," Sebastian Chetan, one of the members of the film creator, told AGERPRES.
Visitors have the opportunity to see this 3D movie dedicated to World War I at the end of visiting the exhibition. The team that made the film brought to the museum, for a limited time, several Virtual Reality headsets, as well as chairs, from which the viewers could conveniently watch the thread of the events and be able to rotate 180 degrees to see all the space created by the graphic designers.
"It's a very interesting feeling, you often want to stretch your hand to touch the objects," said a visitor to the exhibition.
"Romanians towards the Greater Union" is an exhibition in which curators Horatiu Bodale and Razvan Mateescu want to draw an itinerary of the Romanian nation towards the moment of 1 December 1918.
The 3D film was created within a project funded by the Cluj-Napoca City Hall.
