On Monday 10th October we hosted a fascinating live webinar with Emmy-nominated Director and Creative Technologist Elliot Graves (Gl 2007-2012). We were joined by current students, parents, staff and Old Fettesians who were able to learn about the exciting transformations in immersive content.
Elliot has worked on both virtual reality and augmented reality environments and talked to us about some of the roles and techniques that were involved in his work on the recent David Attenborough productions 'Kingdom of Plants’, ‘First Life’ and ‘Micro Monsters’.
It was inspiring to hear of his rapid career journey in the ten years since he left Fettes and it was beneficial to learn how his life as an undergraduate at Durham University was such a springboard due to his work on student radio and his passion for photography and promotion.
An expedition with the Royal Geographical Society alongside his degree lit a passion for immersive content creation and he hasn't looked back since.
