Our 360º VR documentary will showcase interviews with Darcelle, performance footage, and creatively staged animations of Portland's past. Our hope for this film is simple: preserve and honor the history of one of America's most cherished performers, the one and only Darcelle XV. Repertory Films AS IT IS 17 minutes Journey down the Colorado River to see the Grand Canyon as too few do, from the bottom up. Run its biggest rapids, explore its slot canyons, and meet the Navajo and Hopi activists working to protect sacred sites threatened by a controversial development. THE FIRE IN OUR BACKYARD 11 minutes When a destructive wildfire was started near the Eagle Creek Trailhead on Labor Day weeked of 2017, we all watched in shock and horror as nearly 50,000 acres in the Gorge were engulfed in flames. The Fire in our Backyard examines the consequences of the Eagle Creek Fire on one of Oregon's most cherished landmarks. RAFTING THE ROGUE 4 minutes Raft down the fiercely beautiful Rogue River and discover one of Oregon's most iconic wild places. You'll encounter stretches of water smooth as glass, but just around the bend get ready to brace yourself for class IV whitewater rapids! THE WAY WE ARE 4 minutes Every year, thousands of bikers in the buff join forces and ride across a part of Portland. The internationally celebrated World Naked Bike Ride has the largest attendance in Portland, Oregon. What started out as a protest against fossil fuels, the ride has grown to promote biker safety and positive body awareness. DIVING THE RED SEA 3 minutes The Red Sea is a world class scuba destination with great visibility, vivid corals, millions of fish and entire shipwrecks that have been enveloped with sea life. People come from all over the world to Aqaba, Jordan to join Diva Aqaba on these epic adventures. Now you can watch and experience these famous dive sites in 360 VR video. SWIMMING WITH WHALE SHARKS 3 minutes Where the Gulf of Mexico meets the Caribbean Sea, Isla Mujeres is a launching point to swim with the largest fish in the world - the whale shark!
