Virtual Reality Animation and the Future of VR With Eugene Capon
Eugene Capon, previously a social media creative director before entering the XR field in 2016, self-produced/animated the 360 film Journey VR which was shown at Seattle Fashion Week. The short film was well received and was quickly included as a staff pick by VeeR, Adobe and the Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF).
Soon after it was included for the steam 360 program where it was the top 360 film for over 30 days. He followed up by recreating the first level of Super Mario Bros as a 360 video which currently has over 8 million views on YouTube. His long list of companies and brands hes worked with include Microsoft, Skype, Wizards of the Coast, Altspace, High Fidelity, Go Media, Dalziel, McDonalds and Jack in the Box.
In my talk with Eugenie, he discusses how he studied virtual reality and YouTube that lead to his career as a digital content creator. We talk about what VR is and that turning point where VR becomes mainstream. And we also discuss the change in movies where actors are being replaced by digital versions of themselves.
