The Topics Dystopian Films Won't Touch | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

'When the first Hunger Games film decided to cast black actors in the roles of Cinna and Rue, many fans of Collins’s book (who had imagined the characters differently despite the novel’s clear description of their “dark brown” skin color) were upset, but they still went to see the film in droves.

How The Directors Of The Virtual Reality Horror Short "11:57" Shot A Film For Oculus Rift

Some of them work with the Sid Lee Collective, the creativity-for-creativity’s-sake arm of advertising agency Sid Lee, and the result is the one of the first horror films shot for 360-degree viewer angles, to be watched through Oculus Rift: 11:57, directed by Henrik Leichsenring and Sofia Gillström.
