VR Start-up WEVR approached GR to come up with ideas for awesome VR collaborations. “Let’s talk to Benjamin Dickinson and Reggie Watts”, we said. Ben and Reggie jammed over some tea and the far-out concept for “Waves” was born. Reggie will take you on a philosophical journey down the rabbit-hole that is life, perform a song, and battle the all powerful being. Super simple. Nathalie Emmanuel of Game of Thrones was cast as Reggie’s companion.
We shot in LA with both a GoPro 360º rig and a side-by-side Red rig for all the VFX footage. Editorial took place at GR with WEVR handling the massive VFX and animation workload. All-in-all, the project took 10 months from conception through delivery.
