VR纪录片首次揭秘古老的亚马逊部落

在这个世界上,有着太多我们不知道的事情。闲暇之余,我们可以通过文字、图片、影片等多种方式来探索自己尚未踏足过的知识。如今,随着VR技术的不断成熟,人们更是可以VR这个载体更清晰、更直观的去了解地球,了解人类。

  在2016年,大疆传媒就曾联手优酷旅游、奥创天地制作过中国首部 VR 全景航拍系列纪录片《最美中国》,一经推出便备受好评。不仅是在中国,2017年,BBC推出VR纪录片APP,这其中包括了VR版《孤独星球》。可以看出,VR纪录片受到了厂商与用户的喜爱和关注。

  目前,艾美奖获奖导演 Lynette Wallworth 对神秘的亚马逊部落进行了拍摄。影片具体讲述了首位女性萨满传奇的故事。下面,我们就一起来看看吧。

  艾美奖获奖导演 Lynette Wallworth 捕捉到了亚马逊部落首位女性萨满,历史性转变的一刻。

  Emmy® Award winning filmmaker Lynette Wallworth captures an Amazonian tribe as they make an historic transition to their first female shaman。

  100岁的塔塔(Tata)作为 Yawanawá 人(Yawanawá people)的萨满,他的一生可谓是经历了众多磨难。多年的外来传教士入侵和割胶劳动几乎摧毁了 Yawanawá 文化,许多传统的歌曲、艺术以及历史也随之消逝。

  100-year-old Tata has experienced his fair share of difficulties throughout his time as Shaman of the Yawanawá people。 Years of invasive missionaries and slavery by rubber trappers had nearly extinguished the Yawanawá culture, losing songs, art and history in the process。

  塔塔(Tata)意识到了古代文化的衰落,他认为需要通过加强妇女在社会中的地位来确保人民的未来。他首先选择了Hushahu作为他的学徒和接班人,让她成为了 Yawanawán 历史上第一位女萨满,并首次向女性介绍 Yawanawá 的精神仪式(spiritual ceremonies)。最终的结果不同以往,现代的Yawanawa的女性成为了各部落的首领。

  Recognizing the diminishment of eons of ancient culture, Tata sought to secure the future of his people by reinforcing the roles of women within the community。 He would start by selecting Hushahu as his apprentice and successor, making her the first female Shaman in Yawanawán history and introducing women to the Yawanawá spiritual ceremonies for the first time。 The results have been extraordinary, with modern Yawanawá women now going on to become chiefs within their respective communities。

  在观看VR电影《碰撞(Collisions)》之后,Yawanawá 的负责人 Tashka Yawanawa 深切感受到了VR&AR与人类之间的“精神相容性(spiritual compatibility)”。随后,她找到电影导演 Lynette Wallworth,想要使用VR&AR来记录塔塔(Tata)留给人们的最后讯息,同时展现他的丰功伟绩。

  After viewing the VR film Collisions and recognizing the “spiritual compatibility” of VR & AR, Tashka Yawanawa, chief of the Yawanawá people, reached out to the projects director, Lynette Wallworth, to record a dying Tata’s last message, as well as witness the effects of his important work。

  最终,一部名为《阿瓦维娜(Awavena)》的混合现实电影横空问世。这部作品讲述了Hushahu萨满的转变,以及她革命性的被任命为萨满之后所带来的积极影响。这种身临其境的体验使用的是激光雷达数据,每平方英寸可以捕捉数百万个光点,它结合了VR和AR技术,可以将用户真正置于亚马逊群落的中心。

  The result is Awavena, a powerful mixed reality film that follows Hushahu’s transition to Shaman and the positive ramifications that would come from her revolutionary appointment。 Recorded using LIDAR data capable of capturing millions of points of light per square inch, the immersive experience utilizes a combination of VR & AR in order to place users right in the middle of the Amazonian community。

  艾美奖获奖艺术家、电影制作人 Lynette Wallworth 和她的搭档,制片人 Nicole Newnham 前往亚马逊部落会见了塔塔,同时与 Hushahu 聊了聊她在影片中担当的重要角色。

  Wallworth, an Emmy® Award winning artist and filmmaker, and her partner, producer Nicole Newnham, traveled to the Amazon to meet with Tata during his final moments and speak with Hushahu about her vital new role。

  Tashka 在官方说明中说到:“这些VR眼镜就像药物一样,它们可以把你带到一个你从未去过的地方,颜色和声音将会增强,你会遇到长者,你会得到信息,然后你就会回来。”“Lynette 是帮助我们通过这些新技术工具向世界传递这种愿景的最佳渠道。”

  “These glasses act like medicine, they carry you without your body to a place you have never been, colours and sounds are intensified, you meet the elders, you are given a message and then you return,” spoke Tashka in an official release。 “Lynette is the best channel to help us transmit this vision to the world, through these new technological tools。”

  两个月后,Lynette 和她的团队离开了 Yawanawá。在塔塔(Tata)的决定下,这里的群落完全恢复了活力。对女性权利的压制,曾经在 Yawanawá 文化中普遍存在。而如今这种现象已不复存在。

  Lynette and her team would return two months later to a vibrant community completely reinvigorated by Tata’s life-altering decisions。 The surpression of female rights, once a prevalent part of the Yawanawá culture, was virtually nonexistent。

  这位艾美奖获奖导演在影片中充分着展现了 Yawanawá 的文化,特别是其部落的传统医学。

  The Emmy® Award winning artist and filmmaker, was careful to provide an experience authentic to the Yawanawá culture, especially when it came to their traditional medicine。

  Lynette 说:“在使用各种科技手段捕捉画面我的时候,我们提出了一想特殊的要求。”去年,当我们在 Sundance/Skoll Stories of Change 实验室会面,计划我们的工作时,我问到:“视觉展示的本质是什么?”Tashka 酋长回答说,一切都是有生命的。“我们运送了3只满载科技的独木舟,多台摄像机和扫描仪,所有这些都是为了展示 Yawanawa 一直都知道的事情。

  “In gathering such a range of technologies for different forms of capture we were responding to a very specific request,” says Lynette。 “Last year when we met at the Sundance/Skoll Stories of Change Lab to plan our work ahead I asked, “What essentially must the vision show?” and Chief Tashka answered ‘That everything is alive。” We transported 3 canoes full of technology; multiple cameras and scanners, all to reveal what the Yawanawa have always known。”

  今年早些时候,《阿瓦维娜(Awavena)》在犹他州盐湖城的圣丹斯电影节上首次亮相。这部纪录片是Lynette Wallworths和Nicole Newnham制作的VR纪录片系列中的一部分。他们的第一部电影《碰撞(Collisions)》,凭借新颖展现方式获得了2017年艾美奖。

  Awavena made its initial debut earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival in Salt Lake City, Utah。 The documentary is part-two of Lynette Wallworths and Nicole Newnham’s ongoing VR documentary series。 Their first release, Collisions, won a 2017 Emmy for “Outstanding New Approaches: Documentary。”

  目前还没有关于《阿瓦维娜(Awavena)》向公众放出的消息。不过 Lynette Wallworths的第一部作品《碰撞(Collisions)》已可以在各大主流VR视频平台进行观看。

  No word yet on when or where Awavena will be made available to the public。 Collisions is currently available for viewing via the Jaunt VR app, available on major VR platforms。 

  “从事这项工作,我们有一种谦卑的态度。在我看来,这是我们最需要的。”Lynette 补充道。“我一直只是故事的译者,而让我们真正深陷其中的,是那些埋藏在故事中的希望与期盼。”

  “There is a humility in taking up this work, the gift of story that is being offered to us at, it seems to me, exactly the time we need it most,” adds Lynette。 “I am, as always, simply a translator for a larger story, one of profound hope, that holds us all inside it。”
