Partnering with the Museum of Other Realities, Kaleidoscope has been on the bleeding edge of virtual event production, co-creating a number of immersive gatherings including the biggest VR exhibition in virtual reality at Cannes XR/Marché du Film, and a first virtual fashion show with RYOT/Verizon Media. With a commitment to creative exploration, Kaleidoscope has produced some of the industry’s most groundbreaking work including the animated VR film BATTLESCAR, starring Rosario Dawson, and the VR series SPHERES, starring Jessica Chastain and Patti Smith and executive produced by Darren Aronofsky. Kaleidoscope has also helped creators raise more than $34MM for original projects including the first seven-figure deal for a VR film at Sundance.
