A group of Lucasfilm veterans have come together to form a company called Jaunt. Specialising in "cinematic VR' or virtual reality. Their aim is to being a different form of storytelling when it comes to watching movies.
Former CTO of Lucasfilm, Cliff Plumer is leading the new studio with two other former Lucasfilm veterans, David Anderman and Miles Perkins joining at the Palo Alto office.
Recode.net tells us:
The new studio will partner with media companies, film studios and brands in Hollywood to develop live-action videos with Jaunt’s 360-degree camera and rendering technology, similar to the Paul McCartney concert clip the company released last year.
“This is still new ground,” Plumer said in an interview with Re/code. “There’s things we’re leveraging from how we’ve created movies in the past, but we want to work with existing filmmakers and show them this is a different way of storytelling.”
