HERE presents an immersive adaptation of Richard McGuire’s ground-breaking graphic novel. This unique experience is a grand biopic – where the main character is place rather than person. Through volumetric capture and virtual reality technology, we join the myriad characters throughout time who have called this particular room home. Viewers witness the echoes and reverberations of human interactions that ripple through time, connecting with those who have come before, as well as those yet to come. The innovative VR narrative invites audiences to reflect on the nature of human experience across generations. An Intel Studios original co-produced with 59 Productions.

Director’s Statement

Ever since I came across Richard McGuire’s fantastic graphic novel I was obsessed with it. Through an apparently simple mechanic he managed to take the form in an entirely new direction and create an incredibly poignant piece about, well, pretty much everything. Transposing this from one medium into a very different one is a thrilling challenge.
