A big announcement has been made public today by Jaunt VR in connection to a brand new project by the company. Jaunt VR intends to launch the Jaunt Studios, which is planned to be a venture whose main purpose would be to create cinematic experiences for the challenging, attractive and still unexplored field of the virtual reality. Within the new project, Jaunt VR intends to include partnerships with some of the most experienced veterans in the area, who have worked for Lucasfilm, Digital Domain and ILM. So big news hit the forums of the world wide web today as Lucasfilm veterans team up with Jaunt VR in a new ambitious project, with the aid of some other experienced people. The production of content in connection to the area of virtual reality will be the object of the new partnership.
Representing an environment that is still at the beginning, the virtual reality field attracts the interest of many big names in the world of tech. What is the most representative aspect of the virtual reality is that things move really fast and the development takes place at an accelerating pace. So the rules of the virtual reality have not yet been decided, and the tech giants are rushing into being the ones responsible for the way the world of VR will look like until other major changes will modify it.
Jaunt VR is one of those names itself, being a company whose goal is to develop the virtual reality. People at Jaunt VR believe not only that virtual reality exists as a separate field by itself but also that VR is going to be the next big thing in entertainment. And they may be right, since video games manufacturers and developers, TV broadcasters and even companies in the porn industry have shown their interest in the new technology.
Being a company whose activity has been tied to the virtual reality, most of the analysts concerned with this matter have not been surprised by the recent announcement by Jaunt VR. But it is a clear fact that the team which Jaunt VR chief executive officer Jens Christensen has formed for the new project has a surprising composition.
The new studios are about to be led by a team formed of well known figures in the domain of cinematography and editing. Cliff Plumer, former CEO at Digital Domain, David Anderman, former COO at Lucasfilm and Miles Perkins, another Lucasfilm veteran have been brought together to start a challenging journey throughout the world of virtual reality.
