I had a really great time working at Tribe Pictures to embed by designed motion graphics into their edited 360 footage. The actual video is live on the clients' youtube channel: I've also provided little screen records below of me navigating some of the highlights.

Mechanism Digital Studio in Chelsea, NYC gave me an opportunity to flex some REALFLOW muscles.

The project is KILLER DEAL, a VR (virtual reality) horror/comedy short that premiered at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival. This year was the festival's debut of the VR "arcade" which offers movie go-ers a chance to walk into viewing rooms with curtain walls.  Inside each room, you can watch or rather "experience" each project while wearing a headset.  In the main lounge, there are enough headsets laying around for viewers to spin revovling chairs while experiencing a movie.

"The project getting the most visceral response at Monday’s opening was “Killer Deal,” a minihorror movie starring Ian Ziering of the “Sharknado” films as a machete salesman who checks into a creepy motel room."

"Killer Deal" was an amazing film to be a part of because it features in-you-face blood splatters in a 360 space. They had amazing on-set blood for the special effects, but Mark Palkoski composited blood that I generated using Realflow software into the 360 world. It was amazing to see the whole process and what's really involved with making footage that plays well in VR.

I was quite keen on watching this 360  video on this screen. It was shot the camera was in the center, and now I can touchscreen/scroll around any view.
