CityLights, a leader in virtual reality specializing in bringing immersive cinematic storytelling to broader audiences, today announced that Oscar-nominated actor, Bryan Cranstonhas signed on to voice its upcoming project, Experience Yosemite.
Cranston, who is most known for his Golden Globe and Emmy winning performance as Walter White in Breaking Badwill voice the viewer’s immersive cinematic journey through one of the first National Parks of the United States.
“I’ve always felt a strong sense of adventure,” said Cranston. “From a young age I wanted to explore and experience all that this world had to offer. I’ve traveled to a lot of incredible places. But when I first saw Yosemite… my mind was blown. I was awestruck by its natural beauty and felt that everyone in the world should experience it. This experience is the next best thing… it majestically captures Yosemite from discovery to sustaining its natural wonder. I’m thrilled to be a part of bringing this unique experience to the masses.”
Experience Yosemite ushers in a new multisensory cinematic experience, communicating the ancient art of storytelling through a deeper, more powerful medium, intimately connecting viewers with this awe-inspiring place. The project details the park’s rich history, taking viewers from its native heritage through the groundbreaking work of John Muir and Ansel Adams to the natural beauty that continues to inspire thousands of visitors each year. The experience utilizes cutting-edge photogrammetry that was shot using advanced climbing and hiking techniques, as drones are not allowed within the National Park systems. Written by Gabriel Gavigandirected by Joel Newton with VR development led by Louis Silversteinthis experience tackles significant cinematic challenges, creating a fully immersive snapshot of this vast and majestic place.
Experience Yosemite is produced by Garland Hunt Jr., Joel Newton and Greg Downingalongside executive producers David Ganek, Bart Gaviganand Jeffrey Travis.
