We teamed up with Oculus and Facebook Reality Labs to create The Beast, a VR short for the Oculus Quest and Rift.

The first Blue Zoo film created entirely in Quill VR. A story inspired by the saying “mind over matter”. It’s about trying to overcome your demons, and adventurers trying to conquer their dreams.

The Beast is about the battle of the wills.  We see our hero character (a cyclist) take on the Beast (a mountain).

The Beast climb is not only severe but also mysterious. Cyclists talk of how the mist engulfs them and comes alive.
