Metastage launched in 2018 to create a premium volumetric video production studio and a platform for great XR content to come to life. We wanted our studio to feel exciting, approachable, and professional. And most importantly, we wanted to create a place where artists and performers felt inspired.
Our original mantra was “Smiley – Fun – Get the Job Done!” and for partners to feel that energy in a project from start to finish. Our team of domain experts from related fields began a journey we could never have imagined was ahead of us. 200+ productions later, we’ve worked with celebrities, athletes, and public figures to immortalize their likeness for showcasing on virtual platforms.
We’re proud to have navigated the pandemic without losing a single member of the original team. We established industry-leading protocols and created a safe place for creators to execute visions during a time when there were few IRL avenues for expression. We’ve had projects nominated for Emmys, participated in many world firsts, but most importantly, our team has grown stronger, with spirits and camaraderie just as high as the day we started.
The Metaverse has become very buzzy in the past few years – but the idea behind it is something about which we are very passionate. After all, we named our company “Metastage” back in 2017! And while people may be debating what it is and where it is going, Metastage is rooted in the belief that there need to be real people, with all their beautiful nuances, in this virtual future. And we want to work with similarly passionate teams to showcase real life’s awesomeness in glorious never-before-seen dimensions.
We’re excited to announce the re-launch of our blog – born out of a desire to demystify the world of virtual content creation, elevate and comment upon thought leadership in the XR space, and provide a more intimate window into the diverse array of creative use-cases we’ve been so lucky to contribute to over the last half-decade.
Thanks for being part of the journey 🙂
