The live-action anthology series, directed and produced by Oculus Studios, Future Lighthouse and Alexandre Aja, responsible for horror hits like The Hills Have Eyes and Piranha, invites the viewer to join the fire circle at Camp Coyote as a group of campers take turns telling scary stories, each one leading you on an immersive ride into your darkest childhood fears. 

Inspired by cult classics like Creepshow and Tales from the Crypt, Campfire Creepers is one of the first pieces of episodic immersive content that seeks to draw in more mainstream viewers into VR.

The first episode includes a guest appearance by Robert Englund, known for his legendary turn as Freddy Krueger on Nightmare on Elm Street.

The original soundtrack was composed by the French musician Rob Coudert, member of the French band Phoenix and known for his original soundtracks for Belle Epine, Jimmy Rivière, Radiostars, Maniac, and Horns.

Campfire Creepers is a rare gem for a creative director, as I had the chance to shape the project from the script to the final delivery, working closely with writers Alexandre Aja, Casey Cooper-Johnson and Martin Andersen to understand the potential of VR as a new language.

From working with the cast, so they understand their new acting space and relationship with the camera, to exploring the camera techniques, some of which have never been used before in narrative VR, to rethinking the way practical visual effects are used inside the spherical frame.

In each episode, Alexandre Aja and Future Lighthouse pushed the limits of cinematic VR, utilizing new camera movements, editing, macro shots, etc. and always playing with what could be possible to bring more chills to the viewer’s experience.
