Google Releases Jorge Gutierrez’s VR Short ‘Son of Jaguar’ on HTC Vive


#1

Ever since he was a little boy, Jorge Gutierrez has been obsessed with Mexican wrestling. And as long as he can
remember, he’s had a soft spot for the losers who leave the ring beaten,
bruised and humiliated. “I always wanted to follow the wrestlers when
they lost,” said Gutierrez during a recent interview with Variety. “And, you know, the losers look like me.”So when Google approached Gutierrez, who is perhaps best known as the director of Disney’s “Book of Life” about making an animated short film for the company’s Spotlight Stories project, he naturally thought of the losers of Mexican wrestling first. The result of that cooperation, a virtual reality (VR) short dubbed “ Son of Jaguar,” was released for the HTC Vive VR headset Monday. A mobile phone version became exclusively available on Google’s Pixel 2 a week ago, and will come to additional devices soon.http://variety.com/2017/digital/news/google-spotlight-stories-jorge-gutierrez-son-of-jaguar-htc-vive-1202602154/
