Digital Development Management announces it has signed VR Director Art Haynie to its roster. As his agency, DDM will represent Haynie in expanding his artistic endeavors further into the video game space, digital entertainment, digital experiences, AR & VR projects.
“Art Haynie is not only exceptionally talented as a director, but his creative visionary side was primed for a strategic partnership within the video game space,” said Steph Jorgl, Senior Director of Business Development at DDM. “We look forward to building partnerships between Art and some of our best development studios to bring 360 VR entertainment to life in ways never seen before, ultimately driving forward the VR space through new, highly engaging and immersive experiences.”
Founded in 2006, DDM is the world leader in video game development and production services representation as well as video game industry business consulting. Working out of eight global offices, DDM assembles game industry deals spanning all major gaming territories, platforms and business models.
"I love to tell stories any way I can that makes you feel emotion: laughter, fear, excitement, adrenaline, tears, lust… and being able to tell stories in VR over the past several years has made storytelling even more interesting and more fully engaging,” said Haynie. “Signing with DDM as an agency opens up an entirely new world for me to explore, which I think is exciting for both of us.”
Haynie has been one of the pioneers in VR, already having won national awards, shot the very first full length live VR concert, and the first VR political commercial. His work has been published in multiple industry media outlets, and he consistently stays up to date with the latest advances in 360 camera technologies, presently beta testing camera equipment for leading 360 / VR camera manufacturers.
