Patterns is a horror and poetic immersive film that tells the story of a repressed past, emerging…
Walter (the main character) goes to an hypnosis session to investigate why he feels disconnected from his body. His spirit then dives into a mental journey to destroy the dark signs of his own past. What Walter finally discovers is a family secret under the form of a monster storming in the pipes of his ancestral home.
Directed by Pierre Friquet and loosely based on H.P. Lovecraft’s universe, the artwork will also be adapted as a virtual reality experience for the HTC Vive headset. It puts together 3D, videogrammetry and 360° video techniques.
