Stuxnet Documentary ‘Zero Days VR’ Wins an Emmy

Latest news

    The winner of the 39th annual Emmy Awards are in, and while nominated VR projects were few and far between this year, Zero Days VR nabbed the award for the category ‘Outstanding New Approaches: Documentary’.

    Produced by Scatter, a New York-based studio that creates immersive stories and AR/VR creativity tools, the film delves into the rapidly changing world of cyber warfare and its impacts on international politics. Zero Days VR was based on the titular Oscar short-listed Participant Media documentary, and visualizes the story of Stuxnet in a way the traditional documentary simply couldn’t—by placing you inside a virtual world of computer viruses, which the studio says lets you experience “the high stakes of cyber warfare at a human scale.”

    Here’s Scatter’s description of Zero Days VR:

    Early in the Obama administration, the United States created plans for a crippling cyber attack against Iran in the event that diplomatic efforts to constrain the Iranian nuclear program were unsuccessful. The plan, code named “Nitro Zeus” was designed to disable communication infrastructure, essential parts of the power grid, and disable air defenses. This massive yet secret effort represents the emergence of a chilling new military frontier, cyber warfare. In Alex Gibney’s new film Zero Days he investigates the impacts that cyber warfare are already having on international infrastructure and the inevitable collateral damage.

    Zero Days VR was released to the public in June 2017, available both on the Oculus Store (Rift) and Steam (Rift, HTC Vive) for $5. Check out the trailer below for a quick look at Zero Days VR.
