Portland 360 Video Production

360 VR Narratives (Live Action Film & Post Production)

Our extensive knowledge and experience in producing immersive games, tools, visualizations, and narratives put us way ahead of other studios. Expertly crafting and executing immersive content that viewers can’t stop talking about is what leaves a lasting impression – this is what we do at Giant Astronaut.

Being early adopters, we’ve experienced the pitfalls of bad VR – and 360 video is no different. If shot and edited incorrectly, viewers lose interest within minutes, or worse, become nauseous from improper movement, low quality, poor audio, and bad frame rate. It’s a stepping stone for an industry trying to transition into immersive storytelling. That’s why, when it’s done right, it stands out.

We focus on producing high-end 360 video by partnering with the best DP’s in the industry to capture seamless quality 360 video, live streaming, and aerial. Whether you’re a brand or small business. We collaborate at any part of the production to help your story succeed during pre-production planning, filming, editing, and playback. For example, say you filmed 8k 60fps and spent a week stitching and exporting only find out most viewers can only stream up to 2k 30fps, you just overspent $10,000. If you’re looking to fully immerse viewers in a filmed environment – camera height, distance, and focal length is crucial! Why does your awesome new camera which is a dream to stitch look awfully distant and distorted in a VR headset? Doh! These are just a few examples of many technical issues most production companies aren’t aware of.

We plan and test content for all VR platforms and take into account most 360 players will stream your content project your environment differently. Plus, we come armed with our sister company Deep Sky, one of Portland’s leading animation and VFX studios. We scope, conceptualize, capture, stitch, edit, tackle complete 360 VFX, mix spatial audio, and build experiences with precision. Leverage our expertise and give your audience something to talk about. Whether you’re looking for a brand related experience, commercial, behind the scenes documentary or short film, we’ve got you covered.
