Mobile VR for Google Cardboard and Samsung Gear
Mobile VR has the largest reach for companies interested in using it as part of their digital marketing campaign mix. It is a great platform for short form narrative experiences and product demonstrations.
Our team will help you navigate the mobile VR landscape and advise you on a strategy to go to market with your campaign.
Productions and development schedules vary, based on the project. However, most productions are like a traditional broadcast shoot.
We Shoot and Edit 360º Video Content
Our 360º team and camera equipment has a small footprint compared to traditional broadcast video production.
- We have experienced directors, whose lives are dedicated to designing and shooting 360 productions.
- We can work with your Directors and help them to plan and shoot for 360.
- We provide all the gear needed from cameras, to grip, to audio.
- Our normal team consists of a Director, First A/D, Director of Photography, 360 Sound Recordist, and Digital Image Technician.
Animations, Graphics and VFX
Every project has an element that needs to be created. We often add graphics or VFX to enhance the story. For NASCAR, we had to create 30 seconds of animation that simulated what it felt like to be in a car crash on the track. Below is an overview of that process.
Simple graphic treatments help highlight elements within the video.
VR for Mobile Apps
As the 360º video is in post-production, our software engineers are often developing the mobile App to play the video. Groove Jones has a VR viewer that we license to our clients. This often reduces the production time and provides a time-tested software solution.
Our VR Showroom App gives our clients multiple options – 360º Orbital MP4 Player, standard 3d Stereo Projection Viewer and the ability to render 3d Interactive Objects in real time.
360º Videos are highly portable. There are numerous options for playback including both desktop and mobile options. View your 360º videos productions on desktop via 360º players like YouTube and Facebook or mobile.
Groove Jones is an approved Samsung Developer, who can build and deploy content on their platform. We use Samsung Gear VR headsets for most of our activations. These are cost effective, great out in the field and can be controlled via a remote.

Google Cardboard headsets are built out of simple, low-cost components. The headset specifications were originally designed by Google, but there is no official manufacturer or vendor for the device. Instead, Google made the list of parts, schematics, and assembly instructions freely available on their website, allowing people to assemble Cardboard themselves from readily available parts. Groove Jones is an approved iOS and Google Play Developer and can build and deploy content on their platforms.
