Working alongside Google’s engineers and producers, and directed by Academy Award winner Patrick Osborne, Pearl was our second Spotlight Story created for 360, immersive VR using Spotlight Stories SDK. Pearl is available on Viveport, YouTube and the Google Spotlight Stories App. The theatrical version premiered at TriBeCa and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Short.
Prior to Pearl, we were the first studio to produce with Google Spotlight Stories SDK. The result is On Ice, directed by Shannon Tindle, Annie award-winning creator of Kubo and the Two Strings. On Ice is available on YouTube and the Google Spotlight Stories App.
