NowHere Media is a multi-award winning studio in Berlin designing virtual and augmented reality experiences, powered by evocative storytelling. We work with film production companies, nonprofits, media organisations and brand partners to create impactful stories that inspire and engage global audiences. Our work finds itself at the intersection of art, technology and social change. Founders Felix Gaedtke and Gayatri Parameswaran have backgrounds in journalism and believe in the power of stories to transform. We specialise in the fields of human rights, conflict, social justice and the climate crisis. From covering the war in Syria to chasing snow leopards in the Himalayas, we’re trained for productions in hostile and challenging environments. We handle our productions with extreme care. We value quality over quantity, and understand diversity in all its forms to be an asset. All our pieces are born out of co-creative and collaborative processes. For each project, we carefully curate teams to meet specific needs for immersive design -- photogrammetry, volumetric capture, animation, spatial sound, interactivity or multisensory installations. At NowHere Media, we care about furthering the art of immersive storytelling by empowering up and coming XR creators. We take up speaking and mentoring engagements for conferences, workshops and other events.
