The film follows Sean "Diddy" Combs (aka Puff Daddy) as he assembles an all-star lineup for a 20th Anniversary Bad Boy reunion show in New York City.  Intercut with archival footage and interviews, we witness Puff trying to bring together artists who haven't performed in decades, haven't spoken to each other, have become pastors or ministers, and some who have been imprisoned - all within the two-week span leading up to the show.  The film takes you into the homes of many of these performers, to the massive rehearsal space in Pennsylvania, and finally culminates at the Barclay's Center in NYC for the Bad Boy Family Reunion.

Virtual Reality

Winner of the 2017 Cannes Silver Lion award, Believe Your Eyes is an immersive, 4D visual experience created for Samsung by Punchdrunk International, creators of Sleep No More.

Shot in a room built to exactly match the one it would be exhibited in, Believe Your Eyes is the perfect marriage of virtual reality and theater.  As characters reach out toward you in the video displayed in your headset, actors who were secretly placed in the room reach out and grab you in real life - timed precisely with cues in the video.  They interact with you, spin you around in your chair to reveal different scenes, and take your headset off at the end of the video to reveal the climax taking place in the room in front of you.

Here, theater moved forward adding a new dimension to the storytelling. In turn, virtual reality made an advancement in both its innovative narrative and captivating use of sense beyond the technology. It was a truly hidden gem.
