Perhaps one of my professional career's most challenging and innovative projects HUMAN WITHIN, is an Interactive Cinematic Virtual reality experience that marries three different visual languages: Live-action footage in 2d and 360º format, a CGI environment, and Point Cloud video.

I had the opportunity to lead a team of 12 artists and developers for over two years in the quest to achieving a coherent and authentic experience with a unique pipeline and a set of novel features.

In the early times of the VR boom, where the focus of the emerging medium was centered on technological advancements, I was assigned to lead a small team to showcase the studio's capabilities to shoot 360º videos in extremely low-light conditions, which seemed absurd, given the characteristics of the cameras at the time.

By using a native DSLR camera mount, the team conceived and developed this concept video for the Oculus Store.

Shot in Cinematic VR format, “Kidnapped” is an interactive 360 / 3D immersive experience that will transport the viewer to the haunting world of kidnapping, turning him/her into a kidnapping victim for 10 minutes. This short film tells the story of a person who, after being kidnapped by an insurgent group, is held captive in the jungles of Colombia and chained from his neck to a tree for over 11 years.

Developed through an international New Media
co-development incentive between ProImagenes Colombia and CMF Canada.

I worked closely with the Technical and Narrative Leads to achieve the studio's first Seamless Interactive branching narrative experience.
