Giant |Concept Art & Production Design

We produced these exceptional pieces for Portland’s VR studio Giant Astronaut. Tasked with creating visual stories for VR, AR, and 360 video, each banner was painted in high detail from 4k-8k. Half the elements were built in 3D where models are utilized in VR and animation. More to come!

The idea might have been created from working on a 3D animated space project while eating a hot dog, who … Read More

We used the Perception Neuron for motion … Read More
