Mission

To create story driven virtual experiences that will better humanity.

 

This tiny NYC based studio was founded by VR Artist and Director Will Roberts. Will is on a mission to create worlds that are both artfully crafted and inspirational. Worlds that spark a sense of wonder and adventure. Above all, he wants to use augmented and virtual reality to effect culture in a positive way.

As a director, VR artist, and immersive designer, his longtime interest has been exploring the intersection between technology, folklore, and the human experience. Roberts’ personal work fuses a highly stylized 3D aesthetic with Afrofuturist concepts, ultimately creating tangible immersive designs and stories that celebrate the cultures of marginalized populations. While earning an MFA in 3D Animation and Sound Art, Roberts got his start in VR as a researcher, entrepreneur, and virtual world builder in the popular VR platform “SecondLife.”

For over a decade, Roberts has been generating characters and environments in the film, publishing, and technology industry. Outside of his illusory creations, Roberts is passionate about real world activities such as documenting the lives of Liberian war orphans or leading “L.I.F.T” (Learn It For Tomorrow), a youth empowerment workshop. His perspective on design and virtual world building is heavily influenced by his everyday encounters and connections. Virtual and augmented reality may be his vehicle, but connecting and giving back to heritage and culture is his ultimate purpose.

 

 

 

 

  • A viewer does not despise a real forest because he or she has experienced a majestic virtual forest. It just makes a real forest
    a little more majestic.

Lets work together!

Aside from creating our own IP, we strongly believe in partnerships. Building relationships with technology startups, non-profits, publishers, educators and filmmakers is key for us. This allows us to blur the boundaries between disciplines to create relevant and inspirational stories. We are a small team of master craftsman with years of experience. Not bound by any one virtual reality platform, we apply a craft-like finesse and execution to the creation of rich interactive experiences that delight audiences of all ages.
