Mr. Kite has released a new trailer for the VR film Glimpse starring Taron Egerton and Lucy Boynton which is currently screening at the Venice Film Festival and available at select satellite venues around the world. The trailer includes new footage and the first extracts from Julianna Barwick’s original score.

The animated short, directed by the Irish filmmaking duo of Academy Award winner Benjamin Cleary (Stutterer, the upcoming Swan Song) and VR creator Michael O’Connor, stars Taron Egerton (Rocketman, Kingsman: The Secret Service) and Lucy Boynton (Sing Street, Bohemian Rhapsody) with an original score by Julianna Barwick (Healing is a Miracle, Will).

GLIMPSE is a highly emotive, visual feast set in the imaginative mind of a heartbroken panda named Herbie (voiced by Taron Egerton), who has recently broken up with his deer girlfriend Rice (Lucy Boynton). Herbie is an illustrator and through his art we delve back through the memories of his relationship from the heart-breaking end to the beautiful beginning.

GLIMPSE is written and directed by filmmaking duo Benjamin Cleary and Michael O’Connor. In 2015, Cleary wrote, directed and edited his first short film Stutterer, which won an Academy Award for Best Live Action Short. His upcoming release, feature film Swan Song, stars Mahershala Ali, Naomie Harris and Glenn Close. O’Connor is an XR writer, director and producer who has worked on flagship video games such as Donkey Kong Country and Super Smash Brothers. GLIMPSE is his directorial debut.

GLIMPSE is a co-production of Mr. Kite and Albyon, the studio branch of the Atlas V group. It is Albyon’s first co-production. Lee Harris produced GLIMPSE for Electric Skies.
