Without a doubt the most complex technical challenge I've ever faced.
The main film, skilfully edited by Josh Hegard, was adapted by Lorin Askill to be played on a multi-screen setup at Adidas' Futurecraft Loop launch event.
I was tasked with devising a workflow that would enable Lorin to edit in a grid array so that all screens could be played back and viewed simultaneously. Additionally, I had to set up a system that would allow us to export previews to a VR environment as to view the film as it would be viewed at the venue in New York.
The grid export on this page is a representation of what Lorin's timeline looked like during the offline phase. Lorin did a great job of adapting and enriching the film so that it took full use of the three 360-degree screens at the venue.
