As an extension of my interest in tech, culture and digital entertaiment, I work with Live Cinema UK, the country’s only organisation focused on bringing artists, exhibitors, distributors and producers closer together to create amazing experiential cinema events.
My projects and areas of interest are 360 video, virtual reality and livestreaming.
In 2016 I produced Live Cinema UK’s festival livestreaming panel at SXSW, and at SXSW 2017 spoke on the panel ‘The Future of Cinema in the Age of VR’.
In March 2019 we completed an Innovate UK-funded piece of research into headset-free virtual reality spaces, in partnership with dome company Igloo Vision.
We’re now being funded by XR Stories for a research project called Surround Stories, bringing artists into domes to make work that’s never been shown in a dome before.
If you’re at SXSW 2020 you can see our panel ‘Headsets Make Us Throw Up’, where we’ll be talking about shared VR spaces for culture.
