In recent years, the worldwide popularity of virtual reality technology has been rapidly growing. It is a breakthrough innovation which creates a completely new, virtual world, around a viewer. However, no one can deny that the technology owes to VR porn for this acknowledgment. Almost every owner of a VR headset has watched a virtual reality adult movie.
Distinctions of VR Porn Films:
- A viewer dives into a movie becoming a participant of an action;
- The possibility to turn head and check the ambient creates a realistic feeling;
- An actress (or actor, depending on a movie) is interacting with a viewer.
How a Film in VR is Shot
In order to provide the possibility for a viewer to see a complete 360 degrees picture, a film is shot with several cameras. Some of them are installed on one pole. These cameras are directed on the actress. Some of them are installed on the head of the main actor (who is playing the part of a viewer body). The camera angles are very limited. To avoid possible discomfort for a viewer, the cameras are not moving, they are fixed in certain position. An actress has to stay at a certain distance from cameras.
Before the shooting itself, sexology specialists explain in details to actors how they shall act and move. Due to the technical peculiarities of footage, the number of poses is very limited. Besides, an actress is the one doing the biggest part of moves and actions. In comparison to the common porn, she has to interact with the camera, not with her partner. Thus, a viewer gets this eye contact which involves him in the process on the screen.
For an actor, it is important to remain static, especially if there is a camera installed on his head. However, he also has to stay aroused throughout the process of shooting.
As a VR porn film compiled of cuts creates an unrealistic feeling and may even distort an image, the movies have to be shot with the minimum amount of takes. It is way better when it is shot with one take.
Nowadays, a variety of adult movies in VR format is increasing. There are films with male or female protagonists. There are even possibilities to change from one actor view to the view of another participant. All these set very stringent requirements for actors. They have to act under a harder physical load, however, their screenplay must look very realistic. There is no right to make a mistake, as a complete film can be distorted. Thus, actors’ play is a key ingredient to a successful and exciting VR porn movie.
