ElseVR is a mixed reality channel magazine and it brings extraordinary and urgent stories to Virtual Reality (VR), granting the audience an entry “into” the story. By shattering the barrier between the viewer and the subject, VR has the power to elicit enquiry and empathy.
Published online as a quarterly, each story facilitates collaborations between filmmakers, writers and designers to amplify the power of narrative. ElseVR is Asia’s first dedicated virtual reality platform, bringing forth extraordinary real-life stories to evoke conversations and inspire action.
The magazine is the VR platform from Memesys Culture Lab.
