Virtual Viking - The Ambush

Virtual Viking - The Ambush is a 2019 short film directed by Erik Gustavson, using Volumetric video capture to create one of the first films in Virtual Reality. Produced for The Viking Planet centre in Oslo, Norway, the film is part of a wider exhibition of the lives of Norse seafarers and uses a number of VR headsets to enable visitors to experience a Viking longship in the heat of battle.


Skald recounts the story of how he was captured, in his youth, during an unsuccessful Viking raid.
