Micoy

From 2001-2002 I was involved in a 360 video camera startup named Micoy in Ames, Iowa. I helped with camera operation, stitching footage into seamless 360-3D panoramas, and animating / compositing VFX elements like a Tyrannosaurus Rex into 360 video. The technology was ahead of its time and a precursor to the 360 cameras you see today.

360 footage I stitched that was shot at a local library.
