No Man’s Land

No Man’s Land is a virtual reality experience set in the trenches of the First World War. Featuring a physical set including a mud-like-feeling floor, vibration motors to simulate shell impacts, and a physical item you hold onto to light the VR world around you, this immersive experience allows you to step into the shoes of a British soldier and come face to face with the dangers of a German offensive. No Man’s Land offers the opportunity to discover this interactive world for yourself. This fully computer-generated experience will react to your actions and input and will bring you closer to the First World War than ever before.

In the second year of studying IMVFX at the Netherlands Film Academy, Richard decided to specialize in 3D modeling for real-time applications such as VR and games. In the third year he started working on the concept for No Man’s Land. For his graduation project he was responsible for creating the 3D assets for the digital world of No Man’s Land. After graduating, Richard decided to shift to software development instead of 3D art, and has since then been employed as a software developer.
