VRCFilm Interview Series: Joe Hunting

Last weekend, I had the opportunity to sit down with Joe Hunting (Little Poe), director of the film We Met in Virtual Reality now streaming on HBO Max, for a detailed discussion on his work, his inspirations, and the filmmaking process. We discussed the role of the director and the responsibility of a creator to the authenticity of their story and the protection of their cast and crew, and we looked forward to the future of VRChat filmmaking and what might be in store for us in the coming years. My deepest thanks to Joe for taking the time to come and share these thoughts with us! I also want to thank my good friends Legend50210 and Gab Jankums for helping me to film the additional angles for this interview. Films referenced: Paris is Burning (1990) Trailer: Bombay Beach (2011) Trailer: American Honey (2016) Trailer: Another film that influenced the production of We Met in Virtual Reality but which was not mentioned in the interview, was Hale County This Morning, This Evening (2018) Trailer: We Met in Virtual Reality now streaming on HBO Max Thanks for watching!
