Motionographer Age of Sail

The world of immersive storytelling is constantly moving forward, bit by bit. The technology and the medium are evolving hand-in-hand and with each new release, the quality of not only the image but the storytelling and medium as a whole, continue to improve.

The latest installment from the Google Spotlight Story series, Age of Sail, is a beautiful short directed by John Kahrs with creative direction for none other than Kevin Dart. With how things have been going with this series, including Pearl and others, I’m very excited to see where it goes next!

You can view the 360°mobile version via Google Play and iTunes and the VR versions on Steam and Viveport.
