Responsibilities: Converted movies assets to real-time assets.

For the launch of Facebook’s new Target AR functionality, The Mill collaborated with Warner Bros. Pictures and Facebook to create 3 distinct AR portal effects for Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One. We took scenes from the film and translated them into cinematic AR tableaus that premiered at SXSW 2018 in Austin.
