Harold Lloyd Virtual Reality Museum

Last week June 22- 23, the VR Society presented the first annual ‘Art of VR’ two-day festival at Sotheby’s, New York. This event contained many filmmakers, animators, and artists who are finding new ways of expressing their creativity through the use of the latest virtual reality technology. Over the span of the two days leaders of the media, production, and advertisement industry were able to have illustrations and panels discussing the future of media. Not only were creators able to share insight of what the future of media holds, but they were also able to unveil previews of their latest projects.

   One of the newest projects to be unveiled at the ‘Art of VR’ event is the Harold Lloyd Museum. Harold Lloyd Entertainment and Loot Interactive will help bring Harold's life back to this new generation using the newest technology. The Harold Lloyd Museum will be entirely in virtual reality. This museum will share insight to Harold Lloyd’s life showing vides, pictures, and objects of important moments of his life. This new museum will share pictures that Harold Lloyd produced over decades ago originally in 3D.

Congratulations Graduates

As Heartland Community High School’s class of 2017 graduates Sunday in Henderson, Nebraska, they’ll be joined by two special guests, each keeping a promise eight years in the making.

The guests are Brian Selznick, award-winning author/illustrator of “Wonderstruck” and “The Invention of Hugo Cabret,” and Suzanne Lloyd, the granddaughter of Nebraska-born silent film star Harold Lloyd.

How did Selznick (who lives in New York) and Lloyd (Los Angeles) come to be at a high school graduation ceremony in a tiny town of 1,000 in the middle of Nebraska? Well, that’s kind of a funny story. One that involves a silent film festival and a whole lot of letters to Johnny Depp. Read More
