‘Tis the season!

Every day after Thanksgiving, for the past 104 years, my little home of Doylestown, PA holds a grand tree lighting and Santa arrival to mark the start of the Holiday Season. Thousands crowd the small borough streets to see the spectacle. Like a Norman Rockwell scene. I have become involved by providing social media video …

More power for 360!

One of the services I want to provide is the ability to record longer form 360/VR video. Six independent GoPros with internal only batteries gives me a record time of just over an hour before needing to recharge them. Makes it hard to sit them there for a two hour concert doesn’t it!  I found …

360 Photo in a Photo Art Exhibition

Recently, I entered some of my “cropped 360” photos into a local photography exhibition. Cropped 360 photos are flattened single viewpoints of a 360 image, able to be presented to a  2D photo world as traditional photography is. Of 4 images I presented, one was chosen for the print exhibition, where it will be hanging …

Virtual Touring

I recently started experimenting with some new tools of Veer. My subject was an old abandoned historic stone house in my town of Doylestown, PA. I used a Ricoh THETA S camera on a 12′ pole to poke it inside the barred window openings to get a rare look inside. I created the tour with …

Latest 360 video

Stitched with Autopano Video, and edited with Final Cut Pro X.  It …

The 8k resolution allows for very high quality video through VR headsets, Google Cardboard, etc. Above and below is the new system in action to record …

The day has arrived!

Very excited today, as my self-imposed “launch date” has arrived! The official launch of my efforts to build a better mousetrap–in this case a production lighting instrument. Two years of development, applying for a patent, 3D printing prototypes. Making mistakes, do-overs, learning new skills……and I’m ready! Introducing the “CL360,” a specialized lighting instrument for the …

Bucks County, PA “Bucks Fever FilmFest VR Workshop”

I was honored to be asked to be part of a panel discussion on emerging 360/VR technology, and how to use it to tell a story. Many smart people working in different aspects of VR/360. Had a fun time talking about my product development, and learned a lot from others embracing this technology in its …

360 Time Lapse!

Now that I’m getting used to the dual Kodak rig, time to get to some experimenting. A beautiful clear Labor Day morning in my little town. Decided to try for a time lapse of the sun rise. As I found out, the dual controller wrist remote only works with the cameras in either Photo only, …

Much progress made, much more to be done!

The main idea behind this page is to eventually support a product I am developing for a part of 360 Video/Photo Production being currently ignored – lighting. I have developed a process, currently in the patent stage to make this part of 360 content production easier. Design is done, patent underway, and product branding and …
