History of the project

In 2020, museums and cultural institutions were closed to the public for several months and this situation continued in part in 2021. In this context of international health crisis, Chambord has accelerated its reflection on the enrichment and digitization of its offer. Today, nearly one out of two French people has already tested virtual reality and the market for VR headsets is expanding very rapidly.

Shot during the various confinements, in conditions that may never be repeated, this film shows a Chambord at rest, without visitors or any activity, as if suspended in time. A rare opportunity that makes this experience even more exceptional, especially since the project took place before scaffolding was installed
for a period of 24 months on the roofs of Chambord, as part of the restoration of the lanterns.

The film will soon be distributed outside the building, in cinemas equipped with 360-degree technology, or in institutions such as EPHAD.

Produced by Kemmel production, the film is written and directed by Arnaud Lemaire and Arnault Berthou. The company produces in fields as diverse as sports, fashion, luxury and culture and aims to develop a related activity of immersive film production for heritage and culture.
