This podcast features a Canadian tech company, which sent a custom-built camera to space, to connect to the Canadarm, to film astronauts on the International Space Station.
I might be a little hyped right now.
“You will capture things that you did not expect to capture.”
Today, we have Felix and Paul, of Felix & Paul Studios, who have just received a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Interactive Program.
For what, you ask? Space Explorers: The ISS Experience, which also happens to be the largest production ever filmed in space.
We cover a lot of ground with Felix and Paul on this episode, from how exactly you film a spacewalk in 3D 360 from planet Earth to how that raw content gets turned into digital experiences; what roles 5G and VR play in those experiences; and ultimately if all of this content is just a precursor to the metaverse.
This is a pretty detailed and conceptual conversation about tangible things better experienced with all the senses. But what did you expect? You pressed play on a podcast.
Let’s dig in.
