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 […]

Love + Immersion

This is an extended version of my presentation at Fulldome UK in November 2014. The presentation is an insight into the cinematic techniques I used to make Vessel and some of the thought processes involved with making an immersive, narrative based film. Vessel is an immersive film I’ve been working on over the past 2 […]

Klänge, Musik und Soundscapes

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 […]

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 […]

Stereoscopic Workflow for Immersive Cinema

The following post is transcribed from a presentation I did for iX Symposium 2014 at SAT in Montreal. There are a number of videos and images below that help describe some of the processes involved in producing stereoscopic immersive imagery.

iX Symposium 2014

I love stories. Taxi drivers are the best for stories. They are the modern day story tellers, honing their stories and storytelling to perfection with every new fare. Charles Dickens probably picked up a tale or two from a ride in a Hackney Carriage. So my story of iX begins with a taxi driver on […]

Oculus Rift HD Prototype Testing

A few days ago I managed to get my filthy paws on a HD Prototype of the new Oculus Rift. I went along with my friend Philip Day to a secret underground bunker deep in the British wilderness. There we met our contact, a twitchy cyclops fox with a shifty mono-stare. We did the secret […]

There aren’t many standard film festivals that do. Vortex has been selected to be shown in the fulldome shorts section of the program. Awesome! To see the short […]

DIY Dome – First Light

From my last post I was hoping to make a solid base for my dome and do some testing, so this is where this chapter of the adventure begins. Building the base I have no tools or workshop of my own, but I am blessed with a Dad who does. He also has a chop […]

Vortex at SAT Fest 2013

I’m massively proud to be a part of this. Vortex being one of only 3 international films. The Satosphere is the only permanent dome in the world I know of that is aimed specifically at creatives. They’re the perfect model for building a dome as a cultural hub. What they’re doing is completely new and […]
