TELL US ABOUT YOUR BACKGROUND AS A CONTENT PRODUCER
I’ve been making VR content for about four-and-a-half years – and now that’s all I do. Before that I had a music studio where I used to make radio ads and produce music; that studio lasted 12 years. Later I had a video production company that has now morphed into VR capture, specialising in 360 video and virtual reality production. I have worked on various VR projects – around 70 or so. This has ranged from corporate training modules to the tourism industry and even the nature conservation industries. There have been some really good clients along the way including South African Tourism, Amarula, Asilia, Conservation International, World Wildlife Fund and many others. I have been fortunate enough to have travel and filmed in about 10 countries, all because of VR and 360° video work.
We can come in at any point of the production – from the video capture, spatial audio recordings, the post-production – but what we really like to do is take the client through from scripting to storyboarding, then film it, edit it – because we know how the final product is going to look and feel, so it’s helpful to be involved at every step along the way. We have a lot of experience, so it’s nice to have control of the process.
