Our goal at Fox Documentaries is to bring the impacts of climate change closer to those who see it as a distant problem. We take viewers around the world and show them first hand how climate change is already bringing devastating challenges for the worlds most vulnerable communities.
Fox Media Documentaries is a forward-thinking and pioneering Danish Documentary company based in central Copenhagen (Christianshavn). We work on developing artistic VR documentaries that have both an emotive and educational impact on audiences. Our newest venture, Biosphere VR ( www.biospherevr.com ), consists of five different cinematic VR-experiences that connect spectators with the climate change crisis through immersive technology. Each of the five experiences is seen through the eyes of a particular local individual (narrator) in Beijing, Jordan, Ethiopia, Kiribati and Morocco. See more here: https://www.biospherevr.com/#biosphere.
Each VR-experience runs between 5 and 10 minutes and engages audiences on a deeply personal and emotional level. Simultaneously, the five VR-experiences effectively tap into the fundamental consequences of global warming and provide clear and engaging educational content. These experiences have already received a significant commendation at many highly acclaimed international film festivals including VR Days, COP: DOX and Cinequest Film and VR.
In addition, Biosphere’s five individual VR experiences have so far been tested in two different educational institutions: Maglegaard School in Denmark, and Learning Lab at Tsinghua University in Beijing (China). Both tests have produced impressive results, with all spectators reporting an increased motivation for learning following their engagement with Biosphere VR. We have also conducted workshops in the US and at COP-summits.

In addition to the five existing experiences we have produced, we are interested in producing more stories in other parts of the world: including Germany, the Netherlands, the Arctic, among many others. We also intend to conduct more workshops in order to raise awareness of the climate change crisis, as well as to encourage and inspire more climate change initiatives. We are also looking to expand into museums and to conduct exhibitions.
Our current focus is to establish partnerships with foreign governments to provide funding for future productions related to climate change in the developing world.
