Swimming with Humpbacks is a first of its kind Live Action VR experience by Immotion studios. The experience was filmed over a 2-week expedition in the Kingdom of Tonga in the South Pacific.
Jeff Hester, a cinematographer, free diver and MB, was in charge of the underwater filming. He had to hold his breath up to 4 minutes as the bubbles disturb the whales. The whales were on migration from Antarctica for mating. During the experience, it will be possible to experience the bond of a mother and a calf. The experience will be available from April 6th.
