Watch: Incredible Virtual Reality Sci-Fi Short Film 'Uncanny Valley'
"I remember the first time I tried it… I thought to myself: 'Wow. I'm never going to be bored again.'" If you're into the virtual reality craze, you must see this fascinating new short. It's called Uncanny Valley, which is a reference to the point at which you feel uneasy noticing that a CGI creation isn't really real, from Argentinian director Federico Heller. It explores a future where VR junkies have become so addicted to the virtual worlds, they truly have become junkies, jacking in most of the day. There's some great VFX in this, and strong world-building, with a major transition to sci-fi action in the second half. Beware of VR addicts.
