This Studio Could Be the Pixar of Virtual Reality

Two adorable aliens are standing in front of me, waiting to zap me into oblivion.
The logical part of my brain knows they're not actually there. But thanks to the power of virtual reality, I feel like they actually exist.
This is the world of "Invasion," an animated VR short film by Baobab Studios. Founded by Maureen Fan, former Zynga vice president of games, and Eric Darnell, director of films like "Antz" and "Madagascar," the pair are passionate about VR as a storytelling medium.

"You can watch "Invasion" on Oculus Rift, HTC Vive or Samsung Gear VR, with more platforms coming soon. Baobab plans to release additional episodes in the series." Source;
