Today the Academy Software Foundation, the premier organization for advancing open source software development across the media and motion picture industries, announces the addition of Wevr as its newest general member. The Academy Software Foundation now counts 32 members working together to strengthen open source tools development and align on open industry standards.
Harry Potter fans can now become part of the adventure – as two new virtual reality experiences, based on the original Harry Potter stories by J.K. Rowling, are launched at the Harry Potter flagship store in New York.
When visionary film director Jon Favreau saw the award-winning VR ocean experience theBlu, he was inspired to create his own VR project, Gnomes & Goblins. To pull it off, he turned to director of TheBlu Jake Rowell to act as Director and Executive Producer, and to interactive software studio Wevr, co-founded by CEO Neville Spiteri.
