Vulcan Productions has been producing social impact films and XR experiences since 1997, when it was founded by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, who passed away in October 2018. Their four main topics they’re focused on are climate change, ocean health, biodiversity & conversation, and community.
Vulcan Productions collaborated with Kaleidoscope VR to host the Impact Reality Summit on January 9-10, 2020 at their headquarters in Seattle, Washington. They also funded the $50,000 in prizes awarded to four different projects as a part of the pitch competition that was curated by the Kaleidoscope VR community.
I had a chance to catch up with Vulcan Productions’ creative director of emerging media Matt Milios at the impact reality summit where we talked about how Vulcan Productions has been funding a number of immersive productions in the VR for Good space. We also talk about some of Vulcan’s VR productions including Ghost Fleet VR, which debuted at Sundance 2019, and Drop in the Ocean, which debuted at Tribeca 2019.
