About

For more than a decade, our team members helped bring to life major blockbuster movies including Avatar, X-Men, Avengers, Thor, The Hobbit, Transformers and more.  

Immersive now uses those incredible Visual FX skills, in collaboration with historians, scholars, faith leaders, and historical documents to bring the past to life like never before.  

Explore our immersive worlds by donning a Virtual Reality headset or visualize the past through the lens of your smartphone with our Mobile 3D, Augmented Reality, and Mobile VR apps. 

We need your help to make our latest project, The Immersive Bible Experience, a reality. So please back our project and join our extraordinary journey.

Two years ago we began re-creating the biblical world in digital form.  We are building an immersive, fully explorable world, allowing you to engage with the Bible in unprecedented ways.  Imagine exploring and interacting with biblical events, experiences, locations, messages, and people as if you were there 2,000 years ago.  This will be unlike anything you have experienced and will take your understanding, knowledge, and education of the Bible and the teachings of Jesus to a whole new level.

This in-depth form of learning will become an important part of spiritual education worldwide and it starts now with Immersive’s Bible Experience!

HOW CAN IMMERSIVE'S BIBLE EXPERIENCE HELP ENGAGE THE YOUTH? 

Today’s youth have grown up in the digital age so we leverage today’s technology to connect, teach, and speak to the youth in ways they are familiar with and have already embraced in various other aspects of their lives.  By combining this incredible technology with the positive aspects of gamification we can bring education and learning to life in ways that younger generations instinctively want to engage in and be a part of.  Our Immersive Bible Experience allows youth to explore the world of the Bible in fun, interactive and engaging ways never before possible.  They’ll learn biblical lessons, historical facts, interact with important events, artifacts, and objects while engaging with the scriptures, history and other information related to those things.  This experience will provide the kind of context and personal connection to the Bible that will keep them coming back for more!

HOW CAN I GET THE MOST OUT OF THE MOBILE IMMERSIVE BIBLE APPS?

Our Mobile 3D, Mobile Virtual Reality, and Mobile Augmented Reality Bible apps are ideal for individuals, families, kids, small groups, Sunday School, homeschooling, classrooms, research, and more.

  • Use the apps in conjunction with your Bible study or research
  • Enjoy countless hours of educational, fun biblical exploration (Great for kids & adults)
  • Connect your mobile device to a TV or Projector via cable or screencasting to share the experience with a class or other larger audience
  • Get creative and immersive yourself and others in the Bible anytime, anywhere with our in-depth mobile apps

HOW DOES IMMERSIVE’S BIBLE EXPERIENCE COMPARE TO OTHER EDUCATIONAL FORMATS?

Immersive uses state of the art technology and world-class visual FX to enhance the learning process like never before.  Our immersive worlds leverage virtual reality, augmented reality and mobile apps to provide interactive, infinitely explorable experiences.  People are able to absorb and connect with the information in a more meaningful and relevant way because they are engaging with the material through in-depth interactions, written and spoken words, other visual and auditory content, and additional detailed educational elements.

I'M A FAITH LEADER... WHEN, WHERE, AND HOW CAN I USE IMMERSIVE’S BIBLE EXPERIENCE?

There are many ways you can use Immersive’s Bible Experience.  Here are a few general ideas to get you started:

  •  Individuals w our Mobile Apps: Share our mobile apps with your patrons to help enhance their biblical learning and fun at home, at church, with family and friends.
  •  Individuals w our Full VR Setup: Get our high-end full VR setup and create set times that individuals can sign up to come in and experience it for themselves.  We recommend 15-30 min sessions per user and multiple sessions per user over time for an optimal learning experience.
  •  Pastors & Teachers: Provide your pastors, teachers, and other leaders with our mobile apps as tools to aid in their teaching, educating, and ministering efforts.
  •  Small Groups: Use our mobile apps or full VR setup in small group settings and focus on certain biblical aspects or elements with corresponding scriptures and discussion.  Explore together with the mobile apps or give each individual a few minutes in the full VR headset to explore that specific element for themselves and then discuss as a group.
  •  Large Groups: Use our mobile apps or full VR setup with large groups, from hundreds to thousands depending on your facilities.  Everyone can follow along with the experience that an individual is having in the full VR headset or Mobile 3D app by connecting the full VR setup or mobile device to a TV or projector.  For example, we took the full VR Immersive Bible Experience to a faith-based convention in Florida and a rabbi gave a wonderful presentation to nearly 1000 people by guiding a user in the VR headset to various locations throughout our digital re-creation of Ancient Jerusalem, projecting what that user was seeing and experiencing onto a large screen so the rest of the audience could follow along.
  • Use Immersive’s Bible Experience with your youth groups, in your schools, at special events, and to engage with your community.
  • The full VR setup is portable so you can easily take the experience on the road for a variety of uses like; engaging with patrons in their homes or sharing it at your special events, conferences, retreats, etc.
  • Get creative!

Risks and challenges

Our team members have helped bring major blockbuster movies to life and we've been creating Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, and Mobile App experiences successfully for years. We are confident in our ability to complete and deliver on this project and have already finished much of it.

That being said, there is always an outside chance that unforeseen things may happen to delay or temporarily derail a project. However, we promise transparency and open communication throughout the project both during and after the Kickstarter campaign and we will absolutely deliver!
