Ep. 11 | This isn’t 3 degrees of storytelling…

On this episode, we welcome back Will Gee, Founder and CEO of Balti Virtual. A lot has changed since we last spoke with Will back in 2019; Balti Virtual has evolved as a tool for creative expression, social engagement, and brand experiences.

We nerd out on the rapidly-advancing world of XRcise, the compelling ways VR can connect us in isolation, and what perspective in 6 degrees really means. Will shares with us how augmenting our surroundings with XR technology is more exciting than ever, and expanding the possibilities for how we tell and experience stories.

Ep. 9 | Storytelling Distilled: Experiences Drive Human Connection

“There is a special kind of magic that lives in creating shared moments in time.” 

-Nick Rivero

We came across this line in a recent Medium op-ed, and couldn’t resist reaching out to the author to learn more about his perspectives on experiencing stories with new technology.

Nick Rivero, co-founder of Meptik, shares his unique journey from classical music major to data visualization innovator. Fusing skills in design and technology, his company is pioneering creative modes of storytelling that are possible in today’s new paradigm.

Nick tells us about painting stories on buildings with projection mapping and reimagining the content development process as real-time and reactive. He leaves us with a call to action to reinvent how we connect audiences and drive human connection.

Listen to our conversation with Nick, and experience Meptik’s cutting-edge work through these links and videos….

The graceful rhythm of an ugly virus on the move. Meptik created visualizations that are driven by data, in real time, to bring awareness to the devastating impact using the same tools for concert visuals and live experiences.
