10BK + "Bubiko Power"+ Funding= Increased Number of Casual VR Users + $
A VR gamer, trying to justify buying a new headset to his non-gaming partner:
“Hey nongaming partner, you should watch this. It’s like a cartoon, about a little chef and gluten-free desserts from Singapore. Really good, and it’s only a minute long.”
The 10BK movies will make money, create buzz for VR, succeed in 2D markets, and attract food and travel sponsors who will fund the next Bubiko Foodtour VR Project.
Bubiko Foodtour is the star of an embryonic empire. Less than a year old, she has two book projects, appeared at universities like MIT and HK PolyU, co-starred in a game demo with Green Bean Boy and will soon be in an AR game developed by UARexplorer.
Based on great storytelling and creative direction, each 10BK VR experience is different, but all are educational and fun explorations of food culture.
Directed and written by Stephen Black.
Creative direction/research Sayuri Okayama.
Postproduction Consultant: Stuart Rankin (Six Cat Studios, former chief editor for Cartoon Network, CNN)
Audio Consultant: Marc Ursell (5x nominated, 3X winner Grammy awards)
Bubiko is now being made in 3D by Novaby.
