Abandoned: Hashima Island
IMDA works with international partners such as Discovery Channel’s new virtual reality network, Discovery VR. Together with Hiverlab, a Singapore-based pioneer in ICT innovation and creative content producer, they created a Discovery VR app, which transports viewers to the long-lost home of Mr Kinoshita, located on the abandoned coal mining Hashima Island, in Japan.
This is Discovery’s first-ever production out of Southeast Asia, and provides opportunities for local talent to develop frontier tech skills and produce content for a global audience.
