Last week I appeared on BBC Breakfast News to talk about Step Inside My Head, a series of films I produced for BBC Three using virtual reality to explore mental health.
Charlie and Naga asked some good questions and I was really proud of my contributors James and Katy who were brilliant with very little preparation time. It was a fantastic opportunity to expose more people to the possibilities in VR and to talk about mental health in a new way.
That’s live TV off the bucket list at least.
For the past few months I’ve been making a short series of films that use virtual reality to help express mental health conditions for BBC Three.
The series combines powerful interviews with people with mental health experiences with innovative mixed reality filming using Google’s virtual reality painting tool Tilt Brush.
The project involved brokering deals with Google to use the Tilt Brush technology and YouTube Space London to use their state-of-the-art facilities, as well as taking advice from BBC R&D and mental health charities such as MIND.
The series is available to watch on BBC Three’s YouTube channel, Facebook page, and the BBC Three website.
I’ll be appearing on BBC Breakfast on Friday 22 September on BBC One to talk about the series, so tune in 8-9am!
I developed and produced a film for BBC Three showing the incredible skills behind traditional handmade noodles. You can watch the short over on BBC Three’s Facebook page.
The film was directed by Craig Bush and with a great team of Theo Gove-Humphries, Pete Styles, Pasquale Tropea, and Isaure de Pontbriand. We used the Phantom Flex4 camera for the super slo-mo shots.
