According to Joel Breton, Vice President of Vive Studio and executive producer of the film, the main objective of this project was to encourage a large community to take an interest in VR when she would not necessarily have done so in normal times. According to him, all it takes is for a person to try VR once to have a "good chance of trying it a second time".
Knowing that there are more than 2 billion Christians on Earth, this was the ideal audience to fill this role. Indeed, we can easily imagine the film presented at religious gatherings and other catechism courses.
The seven episodes of 7 Miracles will be available very soon on HTC Vive, HTC Vive Focus and most other virtual reality platforms. If the project meets the expected success with Christians, it is highly likely that Vive Studios will target another audience with another similar project.
