This was just amazing! As explained at the beginning of the presentation, it was impossible to bring the Mission Impossible V experience to Toronto. Well…almost! Check out Jose Luis Navarro’s talk about Moving Movies to VR. He didn’t bring Tom Cruise, but he brought props! Very creative work by very creative people; Jose is the CEO of InMediaStudio, the company which most recently did the Mission Impossible V and Tomorrowland VR experiences with more to come!
