I just love VR. Can't get enough of it!. When I got a call from Inception VR about an OZO project, was told it would have special effects and I'd have to be in Ibiza a week later to make it happen I thought I was dreaming. So I arrived with 2 duffle bags full of East End London fabrics and a bunch of masks made from recycled Amazon materials the night before. We met some fantastic local designers and incredible performers who had hours put into their costumes already and had so much talent to bring to the table. It all came together beautifully over a lot of local rum.
We created the environments and costumes/looks for the artists, then did some tricks on set to amplify a camera effect. Everything was handmade and mostly from recycled materials. And because it's 360, you can see me and my crew in nearly every shot, awkwardly trying to look 'in place' among gorgeous young Spanish models and dancers and not at all like we're operating weird equipment.

Dance to heart-pounding EDM with world-renowned DJs, Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike, front row in Ibiza, through Inception VR. This interactive experience allows the user to explore a 360 viewing of each shot, with scenes from a pool party, to a yacht, to a live performance by the artists that will leave you feeling the same club energy as if you were actually there. Mixing shapes, colors, and abstract patterns that move along to the beat of the music, even some digitally added aliens, the user is sure to find a unique experience.
The primary idea behind the Dimitri videos was inspired by a fusion of electronica and new age but with the texture and organic feel of nature. Atmospheric props like glitter and smoke were used to create a dramatic effect across the screen along with glowing fiber optic details to form the overall feel of the videos. The styling was intended to feature the models wearing swimsuits and free flowing materials to add to an overall bohemian pool-side effect.
