Pearl nominated for an Oscar!


Congratulations to the entire Evil Eye Pictures team for Pearl, the first Virtual Reality film ever to be nominated for an Oscar!

We are proud and honored to have produced Pearl at Evil Eye Pictures. We get to work with the most innovative and creative directors, artists, engineers, and animators. The film debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2016 and went on to be released on iOS, Android, YouTube 360, and is the first of the Google Spotlight Stories to have been ported to the HTC Vive headset. Big thanks to the Director, Patrick Osborne, and the vision from Google who allows artists to breathe and be themselves in every way.
