Working With You

The core of our work involves constructing Virtual Reality experiences for our clients in the heritage and environmental sectors.  We passionately believe in the power of history and culture to empower communities, to give people a sense of importance, and foster positive change in the world.  When we embark on a project, our fundamental approach is to embrace the latest in immersive capture techniques, but also to consider other tools that may enhance production (sometimes the oldest technology works perfectly fine!)  Our tools include but are not limited to: 360 Cameras; volumetric film capture (making holograms) and drone video. 

Our Approach

We often work with artists, artist groups, and organisations that are looking to create something special but do not necessarily know the steps involved.  We work our magic on projects and create amazing experiences by close involvement and thorough research of the subject matter, our passion for history and environment, and our technical knowledge and skills in immersive production.   We always put in the extra effort so we can ‘wow’ our audiences.

Delivering the Experience

Once we have filmed, recorded the sound, and/or 3D captured the project material, we then use our team of editors and developers to craft the experience for your chosen use.  We frequently deliver for the following devices:

 

  • Oculus Quest; Oculus Rift; Oculus Go

  • Google Cardboard

  • HTC Vive

  • Samsung Gear VR

  • The Internet
