Producing in The Metaverse with BasedAF — SuperMassive
Robin Schmidt aka SuperMassive is the founder and CEO of BasedAF. Multi-award winning film director and creative. That dude what ran an ULTRAmarathon in VR Chat. Sponsored by FRAZ, the No1 beverage in the Metaverse. He's also that dude what produced killer YouTube videos with The Defiant all through DeFi summer and the NFT run from 2021.
I travelled out from Amsterdam to the BasedAF offices just outside of The Hague. Where I had the opportunity to have a look at the volume where they produce live action content in virtual reality and game engines with a motion capture suit. Doing wild things with facial capture and live streaming, and amazingly short production time thanks to a custom built camera which films the VR space in real time.
