His background in previsualisation at the Royal Opera House, National Theatre and many West End productions and international tours has been supported by his innovations in technology, developing custom solutions for clients who want VR or MR experiences. He now combines this with his passion for creating immersive digital experiences and developing the technology to help his projects and his clients projects become technical and creative successes. His passion is where creativity and technology meet, finding solutions to support artists realise their ideas. He wants to create experiences that amaze audiences and builds new relationships with the art. Digital technology is giving us the opportunity to democratise art, make it accessible and available to anyone and James wants to help bring new audiences to our stories through XR.
