Doctor Strange, the latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that stars actor Benedict Cumberbatch as master of
mystical arts, is bending people’s minds thanks to a new comic book virtual reality experience from a animation studio,
AnimaticmediaVR. Fans can explore the comic in 360° on their desktop, tablet , mobile phone or Google cardboard.

This is an example of how the VR industry is establishing itself as a destination technology. While analysts predict that
VR could generate as much as $40 billion by 2020, most of the money right now is going to mobile solutions like
Samsung’s Gear VR and companies like AnimaticmediaVR that are providing creative solutions to bring this new
technology to the mainstream consumer.

AnimaticmediaVR put together a VR comic page that combines music and visual elements of Doctor Strange with original, comicbook artistic imagery. Since the titular Doctor in the film is capable of warping the surface of reality, the parallax effect of the artwork in a 360° space is an ideal way of enabling people to explore a facsimile of his powers first-hand.

Dr Strange is a mind trip of a action film we wanted to create a VR experience that would offer context for who Dr Strange is and the unique place he inhabits in the Marvel Universe by offering a VR comic that offers mind bending visuals.

“There were a few challenges in drawing and rendering this project: handcrafting 2-dimensional artwork and translating it to a 360° environment, pushing the limits of art and technology to make it playable on a desktop, tablet or mobile phone and developing a new way to immerse the viewer into the comicbook medium.”

AnimaticmediaVR, Creative Director
Scott Ownbey

Speech bubbles float in parallax over the characters and audio effects add to the immersion. The result is something
like a cross between a traditional comic and the digital graphic novels that the likes of Marvel and DC have experimented
with. The AnimaticmediaVR creative team assembled the project using in-house tools to make sure proportions of
characters, environments and objects matched up correctly, and added parallax effects using a 3d javascript to make
all the various layers move on the page.

Brought the spot to life more completely than any animatic I've seen. Likely gave the client and test audiences a fuller picture of what the finished spot would look like.
