Production Company Jungle Partners with Start VR to Offer Agencies World Leading Branded VR

Jungle has today announced a co-production partnership with Sydney and San Francisco based virtual reality studio Start VR to offer Australian ad agencies the most advanced VR expertise available in the market. The production ventures will reflect both the companies strengths including Start VR's in-depth knowledge of narrative storytelling using interactive VR technology and Jungle's exquisite craftsmanship and directing talent. Together, the production partners aim to generate exciting and engaging commercial work for VR platforms.

Says Nick Simkins, EP of commercials, Jungle: "We're incredibly excited to be partnering with one of the leading VR producers in the country. They're an inspiring company and we're incredibly impressed by their passion, expertise and drive to be one of the worlds leading VR producers. The level of R&D that they are undertaking is unrivalled in the commercial space in Australia, and we're thrilled to be able to provide an offering to agencies and clients that combines their VR creative and production expertise with our directors and their creative vision."
