Abstract

This paper tracks the development of the visual methodologies used to conceptualise drowning and the multidisciplinary praxis used in creating a short VR documentary film Drowning Is Easy. The aim is to highlight the calm and unspectacular experience of the instinctive drowning response from the viewpoint of someone who is drowning. This paper tracks both the creative and practical stages of production that were undertaken to create a “recreated” VR experience based on interviews with survivors of drowning events. Further discussion on reconstructions in this new film medium will be explored to excogitate the use of experience VR in the documentary field.
