  This is Ryan, he’s a well renowned chap. As director of the Morrison Planetarium at California Academy of Sciences, he’s directed some of the most breathtaking fulldome films I have experienced.

Imersa – The Future of Immersive Media

I got back from Imersa last week, but now the dust has settled and my feet have thawed, I’m reflecting on an incredible week in Denver. I’m not sure if it was jetlag, the snow or the high altitude, but Imersa felt non-stop. Maybe it was just non-stop. This was the first time I’ve been […]

A Letter to Faith

There’s something special about a hand written letter. A physical connection to words that is lost through email and texting. I don’t think that the digital revolution has left us without soul or emotion, just that there’s an extra level of communication that can be attained through pen on paper. The way the words are […]

Last year I was contacted by my good friend Jürgen Rienow of Kiel University in Germany to ask if he could use an image from Vortex for their 2014 Yearbook of Immersive Media. The topic for the book was sound and music within immersive spaces so he also asked if I’d write an article on my […]

Oh Yellow Ocean

The ocean is magical. Living in the middle of England means that visits to see the ocean are rare, and it still has an air of excitement every time I see it. I miss the ocean. I really look forward to seeing it again. You know, that moment you drive over the brow of a […]

Love Stories

Love Stories

When I was around 10 years old me and my friends found a wooden chest buried under some junk behind some garages in our village. Inside the chest was a plethora of love letters, hand written and between two ‘grown-ups’, so there were plenty of erotic passages discussing things my 10 year old mind could only […]

Vessel at Fulldome UK

Vessel had its world premiere at Fulldome UK on Saturday. It was really great to see it screened amongst so many great films from around the world. It was really an amazing feeling to receive two awards… Audience Award and Best Narrative. I worked so long on writing the story, it was like someone said “It […]
