StudioBento moved into the new medium of VR in 2015. Their first major VR project RONE was an instant success and has been invited to screen at international festivals including SXSW, Cannes NEXT, Melbourne International Film Festival, Sydney Film Festival, Seattle International Film Festival, Sonar +D, VRAHM, VRARLES and more.
StudioBento has a slate of VR projects in development and is committed to working in the new medium.
A little about RONE:
RONE is a distinctive portrait of the titular street artist, whose stunning large-scale portraits of women’s faces can be found adorning soon to be forgotten spaces, acting as a commentary on gentrification and the masculine realm of street art.
The 360' film and interactive VR art gallery takes the viewer inside Rone’s world: we follow him into the rarely-explored spaces in which he works (an abandoned paper mill, a house set for demolition, a crumbling theatre), and learn about his unique philosophy on art and life. The VR experience also takes the viewer into a Rone exhibition and inside his studio, giving them a front-row seat to the artistic process behind Rone’s epic murals.
