About

Crossover are immersive media specialists, experts in the curation and creation of cutting-edge projects that combine technical innovation and storytelling.  We like to collaborate with artists and technologists to present immersive, interactive work that will resonate with audiences around the world.

We have curated public exhibitions and industry conference programmes at CPH:DOX, Copenhagen; Adelaide Fringe; EyeMyth, Mumbai; Bergen International Film Festival; Global Health Film Festival, Barbican; Sheffield Doc/Fest, and The World Congress of Science and Factual Producers. Our VR and immersive exhibitions have a clear focus on storytelling and originality across all genres, proving an unforgettable experience to the public audiences.

Our series of eight live cinema documentaries combine stunning archive footage from the past century with contemporary soundtracks composed by popular musicians. Recent collaborations have featured Mark Cousins and Mogwai with Atomic; Bendikt Erlingsson and Sigur Ros with The Show of Shows, and Kim Longinotto and Richard Hawley with Love Is All. The films are intended to be screened with a live musical accompaniment but have also been released theatrically, on broadcast, and have been featured at MoMA, New York; The Royal Academy of Arts; The Barbican, and Latitude.

Crossover also produced the BBC’s first original VR commission, Easter Rising: Voice of a Rebel which has been screened at international festivals, as well as being shown as an installation at The National Theatre, Imperial War Museums London and Manchester and at The Watershed in Bristol, as well as being available free on the Oculus store.

In our Labs, Crossover works with top industry mentors, incorporating design thinking and bespoke methodologies in order to encourage meaningful collaborations between different creative artists and technologists. We run workshops on Immersive Media development, VR and 360 video production and photogrammetry. Our workshops focus on the development of project ideas centred on story and audience development and routes to market.
