We’re a full service VR studio and production company.
We conceive, create and build end-to-end VR experiences. We transform how you connect with your audience – they aren’t just told your story, they’re placed at the very heart of it – experiencing and interacting with it, in the moment.
Transform your industry.
Virtual Reality will transform how people engage with your brand. And not just in gaming – Arts and Entertainment, Architecture and Construction, Retail, Education, Tourism and Healthcare will all reap the rewards of Virtual Reality.
What can we do for you?
360o Live Action Video (including 3D)
Our 360º Live Action VR production capabilities let us capture real time video and transport the viewer right into the action. Combining immersive theatre production methods with cutting edge 360º video recording, our approach ensures the viewer is taken on the kind of narrative led journey that only 360º immersion allows.
3D Laser Scanning and Photogrammetry.
Our expertise with this technology allows us to capture real world environments and objects and recreate them in VR with incredible accuracy and detail.
3D Design, CGI and Animation
Our highly skilled team of in-house 3D Designers, Game Developers, Artists and Animators can bring the wildest of ideas to life. Whatever you imagine, we can create it.
VR Gaming and Interaction
By using game engines such as Unity and Unreal we can create VR experiences that allow for movement and interaction, adding immersion and realism to the experience. From addictive puzzles to fully realised open world sandbox games.
Binaural Sound and 3D Audio
Sound is key to immersing users into the VR world. By utilising specialist microphones for live action recordings and 3D Audio programming in CGI environments, we can ensure the highest quality and most realistic sound for each experience.
VR Experiences can become even more immersive with the introduction of external props that effect Touch, Taste and Smell. From a cold breeze, to the smell of freshly cut grass these additions help to considerably enhance the experiences.
At Holdens we also conceive, create and build end-to-end AR experiences. AR is blurring the line between physical and digital worlds, allowing your customers to interact with your brand in new and exciting ways.
By combining our 3D Design and CGI expertise with the skills of our in-house Web and App development team, we can create AR Apps that excite and engage your customers. From Animated Restaurant Menus, to AR Treasure Hunts and 3D Fashion Shows, the possibilities are incredible and everyone with a smartphone can experience them.
