Project details

Macrophotography in VR. By capturing the interiors of a dollhouse with a custom camera-rig, together with Eva Gonggrijp, we were able to highlight all the beautiful details of the dollhouse that Eva’s grandmother built for her when she was a child. The captures, after stitching, were turned into a narrative. Within that narrative Eva combined the VR-footage with old recordings to bring the environment back to life.

Using the custom-rig, with its own workflow, we managed to capture all the objects sharply, which was quite the challenge working with miniature objects. But the technical achievements, creating a small form factor and finding a solution for VR-macrophotography were a secondary part of the project. The first was to look at the creative purpose. Because we believe the technology should follow that lead.

What started out as a dream, seemed to become a nightmare when I saw the results that a consumer 360 camera came up with. Many VR-experts told me it was simply impossible to capture the miniature objects well in VR. Except Avinash Changa, he put together a custom-rig and laid out an extensive plan to capture all rooms in all the different light set-ups I envisioned. The result is breath-taking.
