Zeyu Ren (’19) Breathes Life into User-Created VR Content

Zeyu Ren’s (’19) animated film, Wired, has garnered the attention of Facebook and the software developer, Quill, as highlighted in this recent article in Engadget.

Ren’s film stands out technically, but is significant in that it is the first multi-scene narrative film created using VR user-generated software.

Telling a hauntingly simple yet identifiable tale of a boy who is confined to his environment yet finds the curiosity and will to escape, the 4 minute long film was conceived and executed solely by Ren.

According to the article, Ren plans to continue building narrative animated films like Wired and is excited where the technology and his storytelling skills will take him.
