Meta Horizon World's Pride Feature in LBB Online
Super proud to see our recent spot for Meta's Horizon Worlds being featured on Little Black Book!
It was such a wonderful experience filming in both the metaverse and our physical world. Getting to tell the stories of two incredible trans creators.
The short spot highlights how VR can be a safe way to gain insight and perspective around gender, thus creating gender-affirming experiences that allow people to be treated the way they see themselves. The fear of coming out is still rampant. A recent report shows that 40% of Trans People, mostly youth, have attempted suicide. VR provides a safe outlet to avoid potential retaliation from family members and can be a therapeutic step for trans people to feel like there is hope beyond where they may live.

Red Bull Race & Surfing: A Brief History heading to Breck Film Fest

Directed and animated by Five Fathom's amazing Claire Pinegar in collaboration with Jeremy Asher Lynch, Red Bull Race & Surfing is headed to Breck Film Fest this September.

An animated documentary for Red Bull Surfing’s mini series ‘In Plain Sight’.Surfing’s history – from Africa to Polynesia to the Americas – is one that’s rich, diverse, and incredibly nuanced.

So much so, that we are only beginning to scratch the surface and understand it. Voiced by Selema Masekela, the film explores the varied roots of surfing’s origin and its subsequent cultural evolution into what we recognize today.

In partnership with 1 Planet One People, a collective activation that supports climate action, racial and social equality.
