TESTIMONIALS

"[The workshop] has already made my brain start whirling around with things I'd like to try to explore."

"Your insights have definitely given me a confidence boost in understanding VR creatively. " 

"Really enjoyed how equally relaxing and productive the sessions were. They were facilitated really well, made the whole process of creating 360 video much less intimidating - very accessible and easily understandable!"

Freya Campbell

Freya is a writer, musician, recording engineer and game designer whose scattered attention has recently been caught by 360 & VR Filmmaking. Following a BA in Creative Recording in Brighton, she has recording studio lead &/or assistant credits on a couple of albums by UK artists ranging from chart pop to avant-garde. Her games work has upcoming exhibition at shows including AdventureX at the British Library. Most recently, she has worked for Limina Immersive as a host for the debut of their VR exhibition software.

Freya likes to create subdued or understated work, rather than pushing a medium to its full potential for emotional devastation, and to include themes of hopefulness, comfort and LGBTQ representation. She particularly enjoys finding new uses for old technology, embracing rough edges and analogue character, and believes strongly in creating work that is financially & technologically accessible.
