Tin Drum is a production studio and technology developer using volumetric moving photography of real people to create presentations of performance, narrative and installation.  

We develop content exclusively for wearable mixed reality devices. The medium represents the broadest expansion of recorded experiential capabilities since the advent of film and we believe it will overhaul every facet of media.  Unlike smartphones, wearable glasses don’t repurpose existing content - experiences must be made bespoke to utilize the capabilities of the devices. 

We're building the tools to power the future of this medium. We're leveraging the tools to create compelling digital events. We're exhibiting the digital events in public spaces to build the market.

That’s Tin Drum.

 

MIXED REALITY + VOLUMETRIC CAPTURE

PREMIERE OF TARTUFFE

PRINCESS ANNE STAGE, BAFTA, LONDON, SEPTEMBER 2017

In September, 2017 we premiered Tartuffe, the first XR Short featuring real people that anyone has ever completed and exhibited.  Over the course of a week on the Princess Anne Stage at BAFTA in London we showed the piece, one person at a time on a Meta 2 headset (the only one in Europe at the time) to roughly 200 people.

The point was threefold: be first, be compelling, set expectations.  We did it in London because we’re a new kind of studio.  We adore Hollywood, but we’re not Hollywood.  We admire Silicone Valley, but we’re not part of that world.  Todd’s a BAFTA member because of a film he produced called Control - it seemed like the right way to start.

 SHOOTING  TARTUFFE  PRESENTATION  PITTSBURGH, OCTOBER, 2017  Mixed Reality doesn’t comply to any rules of exhibition and  Tartuffe  is proof that the most compelling event can come from completely rethinking how a story works or what it means.  In Pittsburgh, where the piece was primarily developed, we have a door.  Open the door and  Tartuffe  begins.  At one point the viewer can even walk through the door onto the sidewalk in the build - become part of the story.  At Tin Drum we’re curious about everything - and we recognize that by breaking the rules of old media, we may just be setting them for the future.
