Will O'Rourke creates film series with Semi Permanent to showcase the Google Tilt Brush

Tilt Brush3 (1).jpgExperiential production company Will O'Rourke has created a film series to showcase Google Tilt Brush, in association with design platform Semi Permanent.

Directed by Leilani Croucher, the documentary film and stereoscopic VR/360 film focus on two creative collaborations from four world-renowned artists. Produced at the Semi Permanent Sydney event in May, the two VR artworks were created by visual artist James Jean and Australian Ballet dancer Sharni Spencer, and architect Kelvin Ho working alongside letterist Luke Lucas. The artists explored the new technology and how the 3D painting software can change the design process in the development of new ideas and collaboration.
