You won’t find a more staunch evangelist for virtual reality than Chris. Speaking at an infamous TED Talk last year about VR’s potential for change, he said: “VR is a machine that makes us more human.”
Milk began his career in music videos and traditional filmmaking before becoming a pioneer in immersive art. A natural storyteller, Milk helped push virtual reality technology into popular use by working with Webby-Winning media brands, like The New York Times, VICE Media and Saturday Night Live, to explore new ways to convey a message, express an idea, and share an experience—all with you at the center as an active participant.
As for a mission statement, on the Here Be Dragons (formerly VRSE.WORKS) site, there’s this: “Now, in our time, you can actually walk a mile in another man’s shoes.”
It’s Chris Milk, perhaps, who’s walked the most in the journey to actualize VR.
