LensCrafters Clarifye 360

How do you create an emotional connection to eyewear? Help the viewer see what a child sees without his or her corrective lenses. To do so, Olson hired Afterglow Studios to create a 360º video representation of a real-world, real-vision situation.


The production:
We started with test shots of a mock classroom to determine the proper layout for the camera’s separation points to limit limbs getting cut off — a common occurrence in 360º video if not done correctly. Then, we shot, edited, and developed an environmental depth of field — something that didn’t exist in 360º video at the time — and rendered it for final viewing.


The result:
Once published on social channels, the Clarifye immersive video experience quickly became LensCrafters’ most-viewed piece of content ever. This video also won Best of Social, two silver pins and one bronze pin at the 2017 Minnesota advertising award show, The Show, and was recognized as an “Editor’s Pick” in Creativity Magazine.

Space Next

Space Next is an educational IMAX film about how we took to the skies, our race to the moon and our future with the stars. This film is currently in distribution with Big & Digital and playing in theaters worldwide.


The journey to reach the stars began with our earliest dreams of flying and led to landing on the moon and sending a probe to Pluto. But that’s only the beginning.
Space Next offers a stunning glimpse into yesterday’s accomplishments, today’s science and tomorrow’s possibilities of what is to come by way of private space developments and national space programs. The result is an immersive experience of interplanetary excellence sure to inspire a generation of explorers, scientists, and dreamers. Come discover what’s next.


We are currently in production on our 2nd large screen film Touch the Stars.
