Facebook’s Camera Effects Program was announced at F8 conference and the Beyond Cosmetics campaign is among the very first brands rolling out through the limited number of Camera Effects partners.
In coming weeks, Inception will launch additional AR features with its other brand and media partners. With this, Inception expands their immersive content offerings for client partners, including Time Out and Pitchfork. Inception is working closely with the Facebook team to build the future of AR on Facebook.
Facebook introduced their Camera Effects tools to allow users to personalize and express themselves more fully with the Facebook camera. Inception, with their wide range of existing partners and deep expertise creating immersive content, is excited to be one of the few companies with access to the platform and to be able to bring this kind of AR interactive content to Facebook.
“This is an amazing opportunity for publishers and brands around the world to connect with fans through more relevant and personalized content,” said Benny Arbel. “As one of the top VR entertainment apps, we are proud and excited to step into the world of AR and provide even more value for our partners by creating viral immersive content.”
