RANDAL KLEISER

GREASE DIRECTOR TALKS ABOUT HIS VR

DRAMA PROJECT DEFROST

Best known as the director of the

classic musical Grease (1978), Randal

Kleiser has made quite a departure for

his latest project – the virtual reality

drama series Defrost, which consists

of 11 five-minute episodes.

In a screening held in Beijing on April

27, Chinese technology writers and

others watched three episodes of

the series. Afterwards, the audience

had the chance to chat with Kleiser

through Skype.

All 11 episodes of Defrost were released

worldwide on April 25 on Veer,

a Beijing-based platform for VR content

set up by three young Chinese

entrepreneurs in 2016.

Kleiser tells the Post in a phone interview

that he used over US$300,000 of his own

money to make the film, the script of which

he finished even before he made Grease.

“My brother is a visual effects supervisor. He

has done many movies. He began his career

with Tron, the Disney picture. He always

shows me new things like digital make-up

and the Oculus Rift,” he says.

“I first tried Oculus four years ago. It was walking

through a villa in Italy in 3D. I was able to

walk around, go up the steps, look out and see

it all as if I was really there. It blew me away. I

wanted to figure out how to do a drama with it.

I thought of the script that I had written a long

time ago and I adapted it to VR.”


Defrost takes place in 2045 and revolves around

the experiences of Joan, who was cryogenically

frozen after suffering from a stroke and woke up

after three decades. Instead of being happy for

her reunion with family, she was weak, confused

and at the mercy of a dubious doctor who cares

more about showcasing her as a successful

medial experiment than her well-being.

Donning VR goggles, the audience assumes the

perspective of Joan, witnessing her encounters

with her relatives and medical personnel firsthand.

Kleiser says each of the five-minute episodes

was done in one take with no cuts. “I got the

actors to rehearse how to move within the five

minutes. It’s like a small play for each episode.

When we rehearse for each episode, we have

an actress in the wheelchair, so the other actors

can interact with her.

“When we are shooting, we put her out and put

in a dummy [with a VR camera in the place of a

head] instead. That’s how we are able to create

the emotions [felt by Joan, which are in turn felt

by the audience].”

In 2015, Kleiser directed his first play The Penis

Chronicles, about the uncertainties of eight New

York men over their sexuality and masculinity.

He says that experience has helped him with

making Defrost.

“If I hadn’t done that play I would not have been

able to do Defrost very well. I learned how to

direct the audience’s attention without having a

camera or lens or [film] editing. [I learn how to]

just do it all in one wide shot.”

In spite of the huge resources tech titans like

Samsung and Facebook poured into developing

VR headsets and the heated hype regarding the

potential of the technology, VR is still a niche

industry with only techies and hard core video

game fans willing to buy the expensive headsets.

Kleiser says for VR to revolutionalise the filmmaking

industry, the technology has to overcome

hurdles regarding definition and user comfort.

“Each episode of Defrost is only five minutes

long because people who use VR only like to

be in it for five minutes at a time. Right now, the

headsets are kind of clunky and uncomfortable.

As the technology of the head mounted displays

get better, lighter and easier, people might probably

want to stay in it longer.

“Right now, we are at [only] 4K [definition].

[However], 16K is [the level of definition] which

is supposed to be close to the way the human

eyes see. So we have a long way to go to make

it look totally real.”

Defrost is not Kleiser’s first brush with cutting-edge

technology. Working in 70mm 3D, he

directed Honey, I Shrunk the Audience, which

ran for over 10 years at the Disney Parks in Anaheim,

Orlando, Tokyo and Paris.

Kleiser has also developed a virtual-reality

simulator for the US government to train soldiers

to handle improvised explosive devices in the

Middle East.

“I really enjoyed doing that project,” he says. “I

have met one of the soldiers that went through

the training. He went to Afghanistan and he

was blown up in a Humvee and the training

helped him survive.

It was very exciting to know that I have actually

helped people survive an explosion. The

simulator is still being used. All the people

going to Afghanistan have to go through this

training before they leave.”

In spite of VR’s current shortcomings, Kleiser

is full confidence in its future potential. He

is also ready to make the second season of

Defrost if he can find investors.

“There’s nothing like VR. You feel like you’ve

really been there and experience the movie,

rather than watch it. I like the idea of [the

audience being the first-person immersive

viewer]. There’s no other medium which

does it.”
