TheBlu: Deep Rescue takes guests on all-new undersea simulation
Wevr’s critically acclaimed adventure TheBlu has been reimagined as a free-roaming full sensory experience, with cinematic narrative and social interaction.
TheBlu: Deep Rescue, a co-production with Dreamscape Immersive, opened at Dreamscape’s brand new venue in Westfield Century City in Los Angeles, part of the company’s expansion, which includes stand-alone and in-theatre venues via a partnership with AMC Theatres.
Following TheBlu home edition, widely accepted by audiences as the preferred introduction to VR, TheBlu: Deep Rescue is a brand new location-based edition of the ground-breaking franchise. Directed by Jake Rowell, this all-new adventure reimagines TheBlu’s vivid undersea simulation as an interactive multi-person experience propelled by an action-based and emotionally engaging narrative. With Dreamscape’s focus on cinematic storytelling, the result is an opportunity to experience something most only dream about—the extraordinary sights and sensations of traveling with friends deep beneath the waves and swimming alongside giant blue whales. Even more, it allows audiences to experience the act of saving an endangered species.
“For TheBlu, we’ve always wanted you to experience it with other people,” says director Jake Rowell. “Our goal from the beginning was to create convincing avatars and experience this world with your friends. Having the opportunity to collaborate with Dreamscape and work on their platform helped make this a reality.”
Dreamscape Immersive CEO, Bruce Vaughn explains, “Feeling what it’s like to be a member of an elite dive team on a mission to save an endangered blue whale is truly wish fulfilment beyond one’s wildest dreams and a huge step closer to realizing the ultimate promise of immersive entertainment.” Wevr Cofounder, CEO and executive producer of TheBlu: Deep Rescue, Neville Spiteri adds, “At Wevr, we make immersive software—with heart. We are delighted with our partnership with Dreamscape Immersive. With TheBlu, we are in the sweet spot of a steadily growing audience for immersive entertainment and building value for years to come.”
Wevr cofounder Anthony Batt states, “Wevr is not simply a VR or AR studio. We make all types of immersive content and always think about how to use the newest technology to create the best experiences and stories.”
