Filming began in the second half of April at the Cinque Terre on the VR project produced by the Canadian production company BMAD of Montreal.
This is not a movie or a documentary, but a virtual reality “experience” realized by BMAD, one of the leaders in the sector of virtual reality products and experiences, using sophisticated technology (special movie cameras, rovers and drones).
It offers a way for viewers/users anywhere in the world to “immerse themselves” in the landscapes of the Cinque Terre, traveling around the villages, monasteries, cliffs and vineyards of this area which is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Jean Berubé, the originator and coordinator of the project and his team of 6 people filmed for 7 days at the Cinque Terre with the assistance and collaboration of the Ente Parco and the Genova-Liguria Film Commission.
BMAD of Montreal’s project brings to a successful conclusion a very intense period for the Genova-Liguria Film Commission. Filming took place in Genova between the end of March and April on “White Flowers”, the film by Marco De Angelis and Antonio di Trapani, produced by Emanuele Nespeca for Solaria Film, an Italian-Japanese co-production, the protagonists of which include the Japanese cult-actor Hal Yamanouchi (“Wolverine”).
With the other productions (commercials, TV programs and more), in the two month period, the Genova-Liguria Film Commission provided assistance to 25 productions throughout the region.
