VR / Animation: Google Doodles/Google Spotlight Stories: Back to the Moon

Die Reise zum Mond – Zu Ehren von Georges Méliès

Zu Ehren des französischen Illusionisten und Regisseurs Georges Méliès haben die Mitarbeiter von Google Doodle, Google Spotlight Stories, Google Arts & Culture und Cinémathèque Française gemeinsam das erste interaktive 360°-Doodle in VR geschaffen.

The Google Doodle, Google Spotlight Stories, Google Arts & Culture, & Cinémathèque Française teams have collaborated to create the first-ever Virtual Reality (VR) / 360° interactive Doodle to celebrate the life and artistry of French illusionist and film director Georges Méliès. Produced by Nexus Studios.

Danke an Carole Martinato und Robert Kriegel fürs „drauf aufmerksam machen“!!!

Hier die VR Version von Back to the Moon

Hier die Kurzfilm Version (theatrical)

Produced by Nexus Studios and co-directed by Fx Goby and Doodles’ Hélène Leroux, ‘Back to the Moon’ celebrates pioneering illusionist and filmmaker Georges Méliès.

In a first-of-its-kind collaboration between Google Doodles, Google Spotlight Stories, Google Arts and Culture, Cinématèque Française and Nexus Studios, the film launched as the first ever virtual reality (VR) / 360 interactive Google Doodle.

 Transporting the viewer inside his magical world via some of his best known films, styles, techniques and characters, the film also features a Mathieu Alvado score recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra.

Says Fx:
“Méliès is one of my personal heroes, and being able to pay tribute to him in such a visible way is both a rare opportunity and a huge privilege.  There’s nothing in the film which hasn’t been considered through the Méliès lens; the shape of the stars, the contents on the table, every object has a story behind it which is linked to him.”

Laurent Manonni, director of heritage at The Cinématèque Française notes of Méliès:
“I have no doubt he would have been flattered to find himself in the limelight via today’s first virtual reality / 360 Google Doodle, propelled around the world thanks to a new medium with boundless magical powers.”

Enjoy the 360 video above or enjoy the full VR experience on mobile, Cardboard or Daydream by downloading the Google Spotlight stories app for iOS or Android or on Steam.

The Academy’s Board of Governors has approved Oscars® rules and campaign regulations for the 91st Academy Awards®.

Submission deadlines for awards eligibility have been changed.  There is now one submission deadline – Monday, October 1, 2018 – for the Animated Feature Film, Documentary Feature, Documentary Short Subject, Foreign Language Film, Animated Short Film and Live Action Short Film categories.  The submission deadline for Best Picture and all other categories is Thursday, November 15, by 5 p.m. PT.

In the Music categories, all members of the Music Branch will view films eligible for Original Score and film clips of eligible Original Songs and vote in a preliminary round to produce a shortlist of 15 titles in each category using the preferential voting system.  Five nominees for Original Score and five nominees for Original Song will then be chosen by branch members in a second round of balloting also using preferential voting.

In the Documentary Feature category, films that have won a qualifying award at a competitive film festival will be eligible for Academy Awards consideration regardless of any prior public exhibition or distribution by nontheatrical means.  The Documentary Feature Qualifying Festival List will be available later this spring.  Furthermore, the critic review eligibility requirement has been expanded to include additional New York- and Los Angeles-based publications.

To align with credits eligibility in the Best Picture category, rules in both the Animated Feature Film and Documentary Feature categories have been updated to allow for more than one producer to be designated as a nominee.

In a procedural change, members of the Visual Effects Branch Nominating Committee will now be able to stream bake-off reels from the shortlisted films or attend satellite bake-off screenings and vote online.  Previously, committee members were only able to vote in person at the Academy’s Visual Effects Bake-off in Los Angeles.

Other amendments to the rules include standard date changes and other “housekeeping” adjustments.

Rules are reviewed annually by individual branch and category committees.  The Awards and Events Committee then reviews all proposed changes before presenting its recommendations to the Board of Governors for approval.

Updated campaign regulations, which specify how companies and individuals may promote to Academy members any movies and achievements eligible for the 91st Academy Awards, are also presented to the Board of Governors for approval.

For the first time, studios, distributors and filmmakers will be required to use an Academy-approved mailing house to send sanctioned awards materials for eligible films to Academy members.  Each approved mailing house will be provided with an official list of Academy members who have opted-in along with their contact information to facilitate both physical and digital mailings.

Additionally, the number of post-nominations screenings with a filmmaker Q&A is now limited to a maximum of four regardless of category or country in which the event takes place.  This rule eliminates the two additional screenings currently allowed for Documentary and Foreign Language Film nominees.

For the complete 91st Academy Awards rules, visit

The 91st Oscars will be held on Sunday, February 24, 2019, at the Dolby Theatre® at Hollywood & Highland Center® in Hollywood, and will be televised live on the ABC Television Network at 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. PT.  The Oscars also will be televised live in more than 225 countries and territories worldwide.
