Quotes

Henrik’s 360 sound skills are extraordinary. He has a command over the technical landscape of spatial sound and is fast and efficient in implementing. He also has a good ear, creatively interested in exploring how the sound can support the piece the best. Sound is a key component for VR and 360. We all know the emotive potential for it in film, but in 360 it also has the ability to give presence, the feeling you are really there. In my opinion it is as important if not more than the visuals.

Visualise have delivered innovative spatial sound for a number of Jaunt VR’s European projects. As Director of Content and Production for Jaunt EMEA, I’m constantly on the lookout for pioneers of VR production. Henry Stuart of Visualise introduced me to Henrik Oppermann for a series of VR films Jaunt created in support of the British America’s Cup racing team. Henrik captured an array of ambient sounds from various locations in Bermuda, but when Henrik caught the elusive scream the tropical wind made as it breaches across the boat’s race sail - we knew we’d caught lighting in a bottle.

When I made my VR directorial debut on the Gay Pride film Love Letter From London, I knew I needed Henrik to capture the sound of a million screaming fans, disco floats, and to capture exclusive interviews we’d set up with Mayor of London Sadiq Khan and Olympic diver Tom Daley. Henrik later scored the film with an uptempo dance cut that puts a smile on the face of everyone who sees it. Jaunt are very proud of our work with Visualise and Visualise Head of Sound Henrik Oppermann and look forward to creating many ‘noisy’ projects together.
