The whole narrative of the 2022 documentary We Met in Virtual Reality occurs within the online multiplayer game VRChat. It looks at the social bonds formed by VRChat members throughout the pandemic and how their experiences there affected them personally. Joe Hunting, who also served as the film’s director and scriptwriter, created it. So, here’s what’s in store for We Met in Virtual Reality, www.tvacute.com’s everything we know so far about the new episode, including the release date.
This documentary, which was shot entirely in virtual reality and features participants as enchanted avatars, looks at the communities and close friendships that develop inside the VR Chat community. Jenny, an American Sign Language teacher who brings together deaf and hearing-impaired users, is one of the film’s topics. Social isolation during the epidemic spurred the spread of this type of engagement. The episode also follows several couples who connected virtually as they get ready to meet in person (in real life).

Filmmaker Joe Hunting, from the UK, specialises in directing documentaries using the Virtual Truth (VR) app VRChat. He makes poetic movies that combine reality and fiction through delightful immersive settings.
Joe Hunting, who is 19 years old, started his journey in 2018 by taking tender photographs using virtual reality. He then released his first distinguished short film, A Wider Screen, in early 2019. The comedic series Virtually Speaking, which was shot exclusively inside VRChat, and another award-winning short documentary were both produced and directed by him as he finished his film production degree in 2020. Both of these films aired at festivals across the world. Hunting has been working exclusively in virtual reality since receiving his degree, along with the year-long production of his first feature documentary, We Met in Virtual Reality.
