Production company B-Reel Films has signed L.A.-based Gevorg Karensky, a VR and traditional director who comes over from Outsider/Unit 9, with projects under his belt for Jaguar out of Spark 44, London, Nissan out of Digitas LBI, Paris and a stunning VR experience for O2 out of MC Saatchi, London.
Karensky’s remarkable grasp of the future of storytelling was solidified most recently in Real Memories, a narrative VR film for Mini/BMW. The film takes a one-of-a-kind look at how the mind copes with the unknown, as seen through the chilling story of a manipulative psychotherapist.
Karensky initially became well known for his groundbreaking short film based on the popular Grand Theft Auto series that integrated a third person perspective and became a viral sensation that has racked up over 13 million views.
Karensky is the founding partner of Bipolar Id, a VR production company. B-Reel and Bipolar Id will co-produce all VR projects with Karensky. Bipolar Id is represented by ICM in the U.S.
Karensky joins a B-Reel Films’ directorial roster which includes Tom Malmros, Jeffery Plansker, Steven Tsuchida, Anders Hallberg, Johan Perjus, Simon Cole, Jon+Torey, Eivind Holmboe, Russell Brownley, Will Mayer, Jesper Hiro, Jens Sjögren, Mikael Marcimain and Anders Forsman.
B-Reel Films maintains offices in Los Angeles, New York, London, Barcelona, Berlin and Stockholm.
