A Design Week 2017 Open House Retrospective
Hinge gets its party on!
Our 8th anniversary and Design Week Portland intersected this year and was the perfect excuse to throw a party. Hinge and 3DV hosted an Open House on April 26th to celebrate with friends, partners, clients, and our team of talented artists — all the great folks who make Hinge thrive!
A good time was had by all. Drinks were strong, food was tasty and the vibe was fun — even the sun made a brief appearance. We also had a chance to show off our new custom Virtual Reality Theatre complete with a 175″ screen and theatre seating. Guests had a chance to watch our latest commercials & TV creations on the big screen and immerse themselves in our custom VR experiences. There were three VIVE VR headsets available for use and our latest VR creation, Snowball Fight, showcased Hinge’s character animation and storytelling chops in an interactive and immersive environment.
The guest list reflected the increasing demand for immersive CG VR content across a wide range of industries & applications — such as branded events, tradeshows, training simulations. Attendees ranged from creative agencies and events companies to architecture, healthcare, museums, sportswear and technology brands.
We are just getting started
Based on the volume of requests we’re receiving to experience VR firsthand, we’ve decided to keep the party going! If you weren’t able to make it to the open house, our invitation still stands. We’ve got a private tour with your name on it. Contact us to book a VIP VR Experience Session for you and several of your colleagues (and/or clients) and have the theatre all to yourselves, like our friends at OMSI did:
“Thank you for hosting OMSI and allowing us the opportunity to experience your impressive VR creations and to meet your lovely staff. We envision so many opportunities where VR could really bring experiences and understanding of subject matter full circle, and our learning experience researchers are also excited to study this new technology’s impact as well.”
