2022 has been a HUGE year for interactive, immersive experiences. Our users across all industries have been creating the most inspirational – and endlessly replayable – projects. From learning teams through to film production companies, from marketing videos to immersive experiences. And we couldn’t let the year end without looking back at the big moments – from creative productions through to award wins.
Join us as we rewind the 12 months of 2022 in Stornaway!
Customer Project: Illuminated Text
Dive into Shakespeare’s words in four dimensions! Created by Rob Myles for North America’s largest classical repertory theatre company Stratford Festival’s outreach programme – Stratfest@home. This interactive video studies Shakespeare from four different angles. Using a verse from Hamlet, the video puts the exploration in your hands. Choose an angle to approach the text, choose a line and find out more!
Customer Story: Hybrid Events
Interactive event Agency Plesh was set a challenge by a global consumer electronics brand in Italy, who asked them to produce a major product launch event.
The challenge: With many of the stakeholders attending online – how could they create an immersive hybrid event that made the online audience feel as much part of the event as the ones who attended in person?
InnovateUK Grant Win!
We won an InnovateUK SMART grant to transform the future of video editing.
“A game-changing innovation that will simplify the production of immersive content – offering more accessible options than Unity and Unreal.”
This project comes from listening to YOU – people totally new to video and games, but also experts who want better workflows – while of course keeping it a simple no code platform for everyone. We’ll let you know more here as it happens – here’s to this next exciting chapter!
