Our guest on The XR MAG Show today is Eric Hanson, The CEO, and  Founder of Blueplanet VR.

Eric Hanson is a faculty member at the USC School of Cinematic Arts. Eric is a visual effects designer who has worked with leading visual effects houses such as Digital Domain, Sony Imageworks, and Walt Disney Feature Animation. His film work can be seen in “The Day After Tomorrow”, “Cast Away”, “Fantasia 2000”, and “The Fifth Element”, among others.

Blueplanet VR was formed in 2018 by Eric Hanson, previously of xRez Studio, a formative VR practice specializing in 360 capture technology, cultural heritage, and science visualization content.

With a background in design, architecture, photography, and visual effects, Eric finds enormous potential in volumetric VR for creating important and meaningful experiences.

I’m glad Eric Hanson agreed to take some time out of his schedule to talk and share his experience on the XR Magazine show!

  1. What are photogrammetry and good practices for it
  2. Why creating visual imagery in VR works better to experience the places like IRL.
  3. What is the process to create an XR experience to travel around the world
