Harry Shotta has dropped a brand new 360/Virtual Reality music video entitled ‘Virtual Insanity’ on SBTV directed by Rich Mitchell.
Lyrically, Harry questions the line between real and virtual worlds and the social implications of new technology. The video takes you on a journey from the real world to a virtual dreamlike landscape where Harry breaks down the subject matter with a barrage of lyrical insights & flows.
The Cyber-City fly-through was a combination of a high fidelity procedurally generated city and a full facial motion capture of Shotta, applied to a monumental digital sculpture, built by VR legend OliVR.
All of this was achieved by utilising the cinematic 360 power of current game production technology, Unity 3D, the backbone of the most of games played today; from indy productions to AAA blockbusters. These technologies are the storytelling tools of the future and Monkey Science is at the forefront of harnessing their potential.
Please watch this with a VR headset, Google Cardboard will work – You have to experience it in 3D to get the full immersion…..
‘Consequences’ the first AR rap Experience written by Harry Shotta in conjunction with Playlines was recently launched at ‘The Future Of Storytelling Festival’ in New York. Harry travelled over there to network & promote the experience which ended up getting down to the final five nominations for Innovation In Storytelling. Watch for the experience touring the U.K. in 2019.
So proud and excited to announce that I have written the first Augmented Reality Rap experience ever entitled ‘Consequences’. The experience is being launched at the Future Of Story Telling Festival Over In New York and then will be featured in various venues across the UK in 2019.
Speaking about the project Harry said, ‘When I sat down to write this experience I wanted to focus on the fact that every choice we make in life has a consequence whether it be a good or a bad one. But I also wanted to show that the reason we make these decisions again whether right or wrong can be based on experiences or traumas we have been through and that nothing is what it seems on the surface. The writing process was extremely different from my normal approach to writing music but I found that exciting and it spurred me on to write more in the mind frame of putting together a dramatic game experience through bars that people wouldn’t have had the chance to do before because this is the first time something like this has been created.’
Harry Shotta recently dropped his latest mixtape ‘Screaming At The Skies’ an emotionally charged release which featured production from an all star cast of DNB and Hip Hop producers and vocal features from some of the biggest names in Drum N Bass and Grime. The Project was a much loved release amongst Shotta’s growing army of fans resulting in a fantastic chart position of number 7 in the I Tunes Hip Hop chart.
