Goro Fujita is an artist in residence at Facebook, and he’s been creating virtual reality art and animations since 2015 when he started working at Oculus Story Studio as an art director. I had a chance to talk to him at F8 in 2018 where he told me about his journey into creating spatial art and experiential stories with Oculus Quill as his main tool of choice. He shares his turning points and transformative moments that including adapting to creating spatial perspective through sculpting & painting in 3D, working the emotions of scale, meeting characters his been drawing in 2D for his entire life within VR for the first time, being able to embody animation movements, creating weather in VR, and creating rhythm sketches as a reference for character animation.
