Silence in Paradise is an immersive short film about the deadliest wildfire in modern U.S. history. A team of documentary filmmakers based in the Bay Area used 360 cameras and drones to provide a unique perspective of the catastrophe never seen before. Panoramic footage of the destruction interweaved with real 911 calls creates a devastating perspective of what was lost in Paradise, California.

The SUBPAC was used to demo during private screenings where the immersive sensation proved to be a game changer. As the filmmakers get ready to apply to major film festivals, the sound designers currently working on this project are using SUBPAC to optimize the audio experience further.

The festival installation will allow viewers to see a silent 220° projection of the film playing against the ceiling and walls of the exhibit space. Viewers will then be encouraged to interact with a set of personal holographic displays while they wait for individual immersion with VR headsets and SUBPAC‘s that will transport them to the aftermath of the Camp Fire.
