A Virtual Reality Experience

COMPLETED in 2017.  Screening information can be found here:

Climate change is a reality. Inhabitants of this planet need to not only acknowledge it, but also seek to understand it in order to take the most effective course of action. It is up to all of us to do what we can to stop the irreversible environmental damage that will make life increasingly difficult for future generations. In this 8 minute virutal reality experience, we want the user to see--and feel-- what it is like to be one of the most essential building blocks of carbon-based life: a tree.   

Screenings have been held thus far at the Tribeca Film Festival, 2017 Virtual Arcadea, TED: 2017 in Vancouver and at the NAB show in Las Vegas
