Mini’s latest foray into the world of virtual reality, has seen it team with Berlin based Creative agency KKLD* to release two six-minute 360° cinematic short films on Facebook. The aim of the films is to give viewers an instantly immersive virtual reality experience by dropping them straight into a storyline.
