Nicole Kidman Stars in Etihad Airways’ New Virtual Reality Movie
June 2, 2016
See Nicole Kidman as you’ve never seen her before, in a new virtual reality film from Etihad Airways.
The fully immersive movie from the innovative national airline is a five minute feature titled ‘Reimagine’ and sees the Hollywood star on a journey through one of Etihad’s new Airbus A380s flying between New York and Abu Dhabi.
Bringing to life the story of Etihad’s guest experience and hospitality, viewers are engaged onboard the virtual flights with themes intended to stimulate the senses of light, sound, motion, and conversation.
Sharing Etihad’s story in this way is a first and has never been attempted by another airline. Throughout the experience, viewers get the chance to engage with Nicole Kidman herself and her film director, as well as engaging in personal interactions with the Savoy-trained Butler in The Residence and even with the Flying Nanny! The film covers Economy Class, Business Class, First Class and The Residence itself.
With a completely ‘reimagined’ travel experience, Etihad Airways hope the film which took over six months to make, will immerse viewers, allowing them to indulge in a true reflection of what you can expect aboard the A380.
For the full experience, download the Oculus VR app on the airline’s dedicated website and view the film using a virtual reality headset, such as Oculus Rift or Google Cardboard. Viewers can also watch the film as a 360 degree video on YouTube.
