The first official VR short film by Oculus is 'Henry'!

A new VR short called 'Henry' is being created by Oculus Rift's Story Studio as the first debut VR film. Everything is run in real-time on UnReal Engine. The film itself isn't just a static thing, but interactive as well with scripted moments where the character is aware of your presence and certain things change depending on how you view it without changing the overall story arc.

Can VR Cinema be the next big frontier of entertainment? Many are scrambling to experiment and see what works and what doesn't! Now is a very good time for enterprising individuals to take advantage of a newly emerging market!
