The technology and tools are important but at the core, it’s all about taking the audience on a journey.
Sometimes it’s hard to balance creativity with the need to run a successful business. But with our hearts and minds focused on that goal that’s exactly what we’ve created for ourselves here at Light Sail VR.
Matt takes on more of the creative director role, while Rob wears the producer hat but we both walk the fine line between creativity and practicality.
We’ve found the perfect business solution for making VR accessible to all sorts of clients, many of whom have never done immersive content. All while creating a space where we can be creative and tell awesome stories.
We’ve been lucky enough to work with some of media’s biggest brands like Google, Refinery 29, Condé Nast and Paramount Pictures. Our work has been viewed millions of times around the web.
But our main goal is simply to continue making VR more accessible and easy for our clients, and help them create the best content for their audience.
