For this project, our team wanted to create a narrative that would take advantage of the first-person nature of a VR film, and one that would also use the technical limitation of requiring the camera to be stationary as a strength. We quickly landed on the subject of sleep paralysis since it would hit both of these criteria. The video is based on my own personal experience with sleep paralysis, as well as the local legend of "The Bunnyman" from my hometown.
