Felix & Paul Studios Wins EMMY® Award for Virtual Reality Experience “The People’s House - Inside the White House with Barack and Michelle Obama”

PRWeb Tuesday, 12 September 2017
Felix & Paul Studios, the leading creator of cinematic virtual reality experiences, has won an EMMY® award for Outstanding Original Interactive Program for “The People’s House - Inside the White House with Barack and Michelle Obama”.

Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) September 12, 2017

The 22-minute virtual reality experience, produced in conjunction with Facebook and Oculus, was filmed over the course of five days in November and December 2016. Felix & Paul Studios previously won an EMMY award for Inside the Box of Kurios, a collaboration with Cirque du Soleil Media.

“We are extremely honored to receive an EMMY for ‘The People’s House’,” said Félix Lajeunesse, Co-Founder and Creative Director of Felix & Paul Studios. “As VR creators, it’s incredibly exciting to see cinematic virtual reality being recognized by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences and we are grateful to the Academy for the recognition.”

"The People’s House" takes viewers on an unprecedented exploration of the White House, with the President and First Lady as guides. Through an intimate, immersive visit, the viewer is given extraordinary access to explore the profound history of the White House that includes eight years of the Obama Administration and the defining events over the last two centuries. From sitting with the President in the Oval Office, to exploring the Situation Room, and experiencing a special moment with the First Lady in the Old Family Dining Room, "The People’s House” offers personal memories and insights from the President and First Lady as they prepare to leave the place they have called home for close to a decade.

President Obama noted in “The People’s House”: “Every president moves to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue with the full awareness that it is a temporary address. This is where we watched our daughters grow up. This is where we came to know the talented, devoted, optimistic Americans from every corner of the country and every station in life. Because as beautiful as these buildings are, it’s the people in them and the work that’s done here… the triumphs and tragedies you experience over the course of your years here—that’s what imbues this place with meaning.”
Felix & Paul Studios currently has over 35 virtual reality experiences under development and will be announcing their next VR projects at Oculus Connect 4 and Google’s upcoming hardware event—both taking place in October, 2017.

"The People’s House – Inside the White House with Barack and Michelle Obama" is available on the Oculus Rift, on the Samsung Gear VR, powered by Oculus, and on Facebook 360 and YouTube 360. Headspace Studio led the sound design and 3D positional audio production for the award-winning VR experience.
