Click Effect Synopsis

This groundbreaking, live-action, immersive Virtual Reality experience invites viewers to accompany two renegade marine science researchers as they attempt to free-dive a hundred feet below the ocean’s surface in a single breath, to capture the “click” communication of dolphins and sperm whales—the world’s largest predators.

Produced in partnership with Annapurna Pictures, The Sundance Film Festival, Within, and the MacArthur Foundation, The Click Effect was released as the first New York Times Op-Doc VR experience and received the prestigious  Lumiere Award for Best VR Documentary.
