Matthew Hu, Sr. Research Engineer, MSc Stanford University — is working on problems related to computer vision and imaging. Capturing accurate volumetric content can be a difficult and expensive proposition due to the massive amount of data needed. However, with the availability of lower cost depth and time-of-flight sensors, and the ever-increasing compute power of GPUs, we at
Jaunt worked with Diageo to create an interactive virtual reality experience about the consequences of binge drinking. Titled “Decisions: Party’s Over,” the experience follows the journeys of four partygoers as they expose themselves to the dangers of binge drinking. This perspective is powerfully delivered to audiences using new immersive storytelling techniques and interactive distribution technology.

Writing and creating a compelling horror short film is challenging enough. So when we found ourselves on the edge of our seats while watching Arcadia Flats, a 360°/VR horror experience, we knew we had to talk to the writer and director Joe Jacobs and writer and producer, Lacey Leavitt to learn more. From production and
Do you remember what you were doing when you just got out of high school? Probably not making an immersive short film. Jak Wilmont, Director and Co-Founder of Disrupt VR in Atlanta spent his formative years obsessing over video games and 360 experiences and decided to make one of his own. We caught up with
