Specialists in high-impact virtual reality, augmented reality, and 360 video experiences.

Giant Astronaut specializes in high-impact immersive design for the bold and adventurous. We are engineers and we are artists, but mostly we are innovators passionately working to bridge the gap between technical brilliance and emotional impact. From virtual and augmented reality to 360 video, we deliver transformative experiences that make an impression.

Giant’s vision is bolstered by years of extensive software/hardware testing, over two decades of industry experience, and an invaluable partnership with sister company and 3D visualization leader, Deep Sky. We have the technical expertise to create solutions that might have once seemed impossible and the focus to keep our eye on what’s important. As storytelling experts, we build narratives that empower ad agencies, film studios, brands, and businesses, to forge deeper connections with their audience.

We love to teach. Love to learn. Love to push creative limits. But in the end, our goal is simply to do fantastic work with fantastic people. That’s you!


FOUNDERS


Seth Chaffee

Head of Immersive Production

Seth has worked in software development and design for over 24 years. Having worked on everything from aviation software, to mini battle-bots, to video games, no idea is too crazy.

While he pursues innovation with a fiery passion, Seth believes quality storytelling is what drives the tool – that generating an emotional experience should be the focus, not the tech. Both he and Jared know VR is here to stay, and are committed to making great work and powerful narratives that last well beyond the novelty of the technology.

Jared Hobbs

Executive Creative Director

Nearing two decades of experience producing interactive content, narrative animation, visual effects, motion design, and live action film projects, Jared is now bringing his master storytelling techniques and technical expertise to the virtual landscape at Giant Astronaut.

Obsessively experimenting with both consumer and prosumer 360 video camera systems, Jared is exploring new techniques in 360 production, along with directing a team of 360 editors and VFX artists. To say he’s passionate about storytelling in this erupting new medium would be an understatement.
