One Morning By Rodrigo Blaas

One Morning, an original animation, is a casual encounter with a robot bird in the middle of the wilderness. It is created by Rodrigo Blaas, award-winning animator and director, known for his work on Trollhunters, WALL-E, Up, and Finding Nemo.

“With Lytro VT, One Morning has a very rich and detailed quality in VR, which is really mind-blowing. Once you put the headset on and experience it, you don’t want to go back. It’s a new reality.”
- Rodrigo Blaas
