The Oculus Rift aims to change the way we play video games with its fully-immersive virtual reality headset, but it also has its sights set on impacting the way we consume all media, including movies.

Video tech startup Condition One is currently working on a documentary called “Zero Point” about virtual reality headsets, made specifically for the Oculus Rift. Although the production was announced last year, the company released its first interactive trailer, which gives a fascinating taste of what we might see.

The Oculus Rift supports 3D movies and a 360-degree viewing experience — and “Zero Point” will take advantage of both — but the trailer is limited to 180-degree angles for now. But the two-minute clip lets you move your mouse in different directions to see different perspectives, likening the experience to moving your head while wearing the Oculus Rift.

Condition One founder Danfung Dennis, an Oscar nominated filmmaker, reportedly plans to make more movies through the headset in the future, according to TechCrunch.
