360 Degree & Extended Reality Media

Montage of Mixed Reality and 360 Video Projects, from Equational Media

Extended Reality refers to media that goes beyond the bounds of traditional 2D screens – mostly Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, and 360 Video. We’ve been getting our feet wet with some 360 videos and VR projects, creatively and technically. We’ve filmed a 360 wedding, contributed to a live stream in VR, and helped implement a 360 sitcom.

HTC Documentary

Equational Media - HTC Documentary on Eadweard Muybridge

Created a micro documentary on the history of photography as a promotion for the OneX phone, from HTC, that paid homage to motion photography pioneer Eadweard Muybridge. This came out of the idea to reproduce, via the phone camera’s “burst” feature (new at the time), a modern version of the very first motion picture ever produced. Immersing myself in the history of the art and science behind the very earliest days of the movies was exciting, enlightening, and spiritual. Via Mofilm and The Mother Agency.

SyFy Logo Animation

SyFy Channel Logo Bumper

An animation of the SyFy Network’s logo, via a series of commissions via Tongal, the crowd-sourced producing platform. My first real 3D animated production. Challenging but rewarding!

Cool Planet Awards Video

Cool Planet Awards presentation featuring Californai Governor Jerry Brown, from TigerComm

Developed motion graphics, as visually designed by Vincent Burkhead Studio, for the keynote video presented at the annual Cool Planet Award ceremony from The Climate Registry. The video itself was put together by clean tech marketing firm TigerComm. Once the graphical look and feel was defined and the assets delivered, they were animated using Adobe After Effects and Premiere. A quick, two day turnaround from initial proposal to final delivery, and a rewarding challenge.

Ideations – NASA Zero Robotics Promotions

NASA Zero Robotics - a STEM competition - promotions

Came up with promo ideas for Zero Robotics, a STEM competition sponsored by MIT and NASA for pre-college students. The crowdsourcing creative platform Tongal put out the call for these ideations, and I was fortunate to have several of them chosen to be produced and directed by talented and creative filmmakers through the same platform.
