Our staff pick this week is a treasured motion designer from our team: Duncan McDade. Duncan’s designs are refreshingly playful and full of humor. Each design is a miniature world with its own rules: a white screen turns into white fabric, an avocado is pictured next to a house as part of the landscape, and a croissant becomes a mountain in an urban panorama.
Another workflow technology we’ve been using in our XR Studio is Notch, which offers real-time graphics for virtual production. We spoke to the founder of Notch, Matt Swoboda, about his initial vision for the company, how that vision has changed and how to stay on top of the game when it comes to creating hybrid experiences for audiences in the coming years.
This week, we want to shed light on Green Hippo, and their award-winning Hippotizer Media Server range. We spoke to Nick Spencer, Product Specialist at the company, about what their product and technology has to offer to creatives.
With events going digital, technology has become even more so indispensable. We have been using disguise’s XR workflows within our hybrid event productions. So the opportunity to speak to Peter Kirkup, Global Technical Solutions Manager at disguise, about their vision for the future of events, was particularly relevant to us and our quest to develop new engaging formats.
Peter heads a team that is responsible for technical pre-sales. He manages the demo setup for customers. Therefore, Peter does not only have a good understanding of the newest technological features on the market, but also of the creatives‘ and end customers‘ needs. The conversation was especially interesting in terms of gaining a greater understanding of what digital elements enhance the immersive dimension of an event.
We are excited to share an interview with Tom Bueschemann, CEO of Platoon Global Communications. Tom was leading the onsite concepting and production of the 30th anniversary of German unification event “Garden of Unity” at the German embassy in Seoul, South Korea, where the hybrid experience of our Symphony of Now premiered on October 17, 2020.
