Félix Lajeunesse, BFA 03, along with his company, Felix & Paul Studios, won the 2021 Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Interactive Program for Space Explorers: The ISS Experience. This is the sixth time the studio — which creates immersive entertainment experiences — has been nominated for an Emmy.
The winning production was created in collaboration with Time Magazine’s Time Studios. It’s a four-part immersive series chronicling the transformative missions of eight astronauts aboard the International Space Station.
Shot over two years with complete access to the crew, the series is the largest production ever filmed in space. It was filmed for virtual reality (VR) using 360-degree technology, meaning all angles are available to viewers at any moment.
Viewers with a VR headsets, or 5G-enabled smartphones and tablets, can sit alongside the astronauts as Lajeunesse’s story unfolds around them.
