RENDEVER is partnering with a healthcare organization and looking to create a 5-minute, virtual reality “aging” simulation followed by a 5-minute caregiving tutorial. They are currently looking to bring a VR producer aboard. They are also interested in finding an experienced VR editor, for both this project as well as a possible documentary (that contains a VR extension).
RENDEVER is an MIT-Startup company that has created a VR platform for assisted living facilities. It’s a social experience that brings the elderly together and connects home-bound individuals with their families and loved ones. Their partners are MIT Age-lab, Harvard, and Massachusetts General Hospital.
There’s one more opportunity as well. RENDEVER has established VR content partnerships with a number of organizations and is looking to continue to build upon their collection of content. If anyone is interested in getting their VR content on the Rendever platform, Chris would be happy to speak with them.
I encourage any interested parties to check out And/or watch this video on the Fast Company website:
Interested? Contact Chris Tedrick at 
The Tellyvizion team is looking for someone who can help them create an explainer video for their launch. Primarily looking for both an animator for their explanation video along the lines of Spotify.
Also, prior to their release, we have some videos that need some minor tweaking in Final Cut.
