Stereoscopy, real-time stitching and live preview

To increase the immersive impact of VR, we’ve invested in a  stereoscopic camera rig, a fantastic tool that generates a highly dynamic three-dimensional image. By filming two different images – one for the left and one for the right eye – we are able to simulate three-dimensional depth, just as if you are looking at the real world. Like any production, this can look strange if poorly implemented, or absolutely amazing if done right.

A live-stitched preview means that the director and the client can watch a VR stitched image live on the set.

Milow goes LED

For the most recent Milow tour, Fisheye built 45 custom LED fixtures, each separately controlled by 86 DMX addresses. That adds up to 3,870 DMX channels filling 8 DMX universes with as many as 990.720 parameters. What did we need for this? 1km of cable, and 10.800 minutes to complete the job. That should keep the number-crunchers happy.

The making off the LUXIBEL booth

How to combine movement, sound, light and smoke.
This is the making off video of the new Luxibel booth at PS+L in Frankfurt. An inhouse concept, tech, and construction. The way we like it 😉

V to the R, virtually all updates, thus far

Bridgestone Driveguard. A piercing idea!

Punctured tires? Foggitaboudit. We don’t do that, especially since Bridgestone launched the Bridgetstone Driveguard, a tyre that never goes flat. FisheyeVR developed a genuine VR-experience allowing you to undergo the Driveguard sensation. The ravishing Paloma is your designated driver; this project has become an overwhelming piece of VR-art, full of 3D-live action and 360° drone footage.

 

Aurora, where art thou? 

Wow. And again. Wow! Totally overwhelmed by the Northern Lights (also know as Aurora Borealis). Alas, it has always been impossible to capture this fantastic, fairy-like phenomenon on film. Until now! Sony has launched the Alpha 7S2, a camera with a light sensitivity up to 409600 ISO. From now on we can see everything. Yeah, also what you should not do at full moon parties. Because we nearly went berserk when we heard about this new product, we had to check it out ourselves. And did we! For a French production unit we made a special 360° rig, specifically shot for VR-experience.

PVV Insurances: a 360° commercial

Our friends at Caviar asked us to take on the photography and post-production for a P&V Insurances commercial. Of course! Did we mention we travelled to South-Africa? We did. It was fun.
