November 6th, 2017 – Tel Aviv, Israel & San Francisco, CA – Kaleidoscope and Inception today announced the launch of an exclusive channel featuring projects from top VR creators from the Kaleidoscope network, curated by Kaleidoscope founders Rene and Selena Pinnell.
Kaleidoscope, whose mission is to give independent VR creators and studios the resources they need to do great work, runs an invite-only community to help secure financing, distribution and exposure for premium VR content. Inception, a top VR creator and distributor recently funded by RTL Group, has a top cross-platform app and works with talents and publications including Pitchfork and Time Out, and has been working with creators since launch to distribute their content.
The Kaleidoscope channel will exist exclusively on the Inception app, and will be updated every week with new content from creators around the world. At launch, the channel will include works from Ben Outram, Sophie Ansel, and Nicholas Pittom.
“We believe that the best way to grow the VR market is to help get amazing content out there,” said Inception CEO Benny Arbel. “Although we create some content in-house, we’re hungry for more so we’re thrilled to be working with Kaleidoscope to help independent creators get their content distributed and marketed. With our best-in-class VR app and wide range of marketing capabilities, we’re excited to work with these creators to share their content with the world.”
