On the 10th and 11th of February a small corner of South-East London was the temporary home to some of the major players in the growing UK VR scene and we were excited to be part of this inaugural event.
Hosted by Ravensbourne, a university sector college next door to the O2 in Greenwich and in collaboration with VR marketing specialists, Virtual Umbrella, VRUK promised to be 2 days of talks from leading content creators and the opportunity to get hands-on with latest VR experiences and tech demos.
Visualise’s CEO and co-founder Henry Stuart took to the stage on day 1 presenting his talk, ‘Respecting Your Viewer and Other Rules of Great VR‘, while upstairs in the Innovation Zone the team were showcasing examples of our latest work.
No VR studio worth their salt is without a VR Showreel, we took viewers through some of the best work we’ve produced in the last 12 months for clients including Thomas Cook, Samsung, Refinery 29, and O2.
We were also showcasing a preview of one of our latest R&D projects, Spitalfields Life, a series of vignettes filmed with our stereoscopic rig and using the Sennheiser prototype VR Mic to capture 3D audio, delivering a truly immersive and intimate portrait of East-London’s characters.
