Canadien de Montréal
The Montreal Canadiens, known officially as le Club de Hockey Canadien and colloquially as the Habs, are a renowned professional ice hockey team based in Montreal, Canada. Competing in the National Hockey League (NHL) as a proud member of the Atlantic Division within the Eastern Conference, the Canadiens boast a rich legacy and a massive fan base.
Understanding the power of Virtual Reality (VR) in enhancing fan engagement and creating immersive experiences, the insight was to leverage this technology to capture the pre-game atmosphere within the players' locker room. By placing VR cameras in strategic locations and immersing the fans in the pre-game conversations and energy, the Montreal Canadiens sought to deepen the emotional connection with their audience.
JED Lab Productions collaborated with the Montreal Canadiens to create an exhilarating VR short film experience. The film was shot using VR cameras positioned directly in the players' locker room, capturing original content, pre-game conversations, and the vibrant energy before a game. This VR experience was meticulously designed to provide fans with an up-close and personal encounter, emulating the excitement and anticipation of the players.
