Titmouse Maps a Psychedelic Musical VR Trip with Tilt Brush

Show-It-2-Me-150

Emmy Award-winning animation studio Titmouse (Big Mouth, Niko and the Sword of Light, Venture Bros.) is venturing further into the realms of virtual reality, having started things off with a bang with last year’s Smash Party VR. Available for free on a number of platforms, the new project is an interactive VR music video: Show It 2 Me. The experience takes viewers along riding shotgun next to a demon woman through a pulsing, ’80s-inspired neon landscape.

“Nowhere else can you find demonic cars, pulsating brains, and disembodied tongue-mouths all in one VR music experience,” said Chris Prynoski, Titmouse president and owner. “Show It 2 Me is the perfect way to leave the meat world and enjoy three minutes of electrosonic VR dream stabbing.”

Co-directed by Mark Brooks and Dylan Carter, Show It 2 Me premiered earlier this year at SXSW Virtual Cinema. The title is taken from the song by LA electronic music deo Night Club, featuring Emily Kavanaugh and Mark Brooks.

All artistic elements for the video were created using Google’s Tilt Brush VR app, then placed in Unity. Prynoski and Titmouse creative director Antonio Canobbio created the artwork using the audio reactive brushes, which animate to music, included in the Tilt Brush Toolkit released earlier this year.

“We open sourced the entire Tilt Brush Toolkit in hopes that other artists can follow in Titmouse’s footsteps and create their own VR music videos along with any other narrative, interactive, and immersive content they can dream up,” said Tilt Brush creative director Drew Skillman.

Titmouse further announced that it will release another VR music video before the end of the year: Icarus 666, a “Space Mountain VR ride with a metal symphony driving your spaceship.” The project samples a track from Brendon Small’s album Galaktikon II: Become the Storm. If Small’s name sounds familiar, that’s because he’s the co-creator and musical mastermind behind animated series Metalocalypse and Home Movies.

The studio has also just launched a new World Lens for AR app Snapchat called Gravy Time, which is being showcased as part of Snap Inc.’s new Lens Studio developer tool.

Show It 2 Me is available for free via Steam for HTC Vive and on the Oculus Story for Rift and Gear VR.
