It’s a bit of an accident the way Penrose’s next VR movie came to be named. Allumette means “matchstick” in French, and it was the temporary name for the title character in a private screenplay that was not intended to be seen by the outside world. Gradually the name grew on us, and as Allumette’s world came to be built around her in VR, so the name stuck. Allumette.
Today, we’re happy to announce Penrose’s next VR movie Allumette. We’re screening an early VR trailer to select audiences, and the full movie is set to premiere later this year.
