Google's Tilt Brush Film Shows Where Art Is Heading in the Age of Virtual Reality
App Allows You to Create All Around
May 05, 2016
If you have yet to feast your eyes on Google's "Tilt Brush," the new app that allows users to create multi-dimensional art using virtual reality, this new film will give you a sense of the creative power it puts into artists' hands.
Created out of M ss ng P eces and MPC and directed by Ray Tintori, the film opens on an artist in her studio getting ready to create. As soon as she dons her VR headset, the world blackens around her and she users her gaming controllers to surrounde herself with a dazzling garden. Fellow artists around her build their own worlds as well -- a fashion designer "paints" clothes onto a mannequin while another creator imagines whimsical otherworldly creatures.
Tilt Brush came bundled with the HTC Vive when it was released earlier this year and has been hailed by publications as "VR'skiller app" and the "first great VR app." Observers see it as an easy, fun window for non-hardcore gamers to jump into VR experiences and familiarize themselves with the gaming controls.
