Hippo Campus Debut Virtual Reality Video w. The Creator’s Project, Announce New US Tour Dates

Hippo Campus worked with prior Pixar Technical Director Najeeb Tarazi (Monsters University, Toy Story 3) for their latest video, breaking new ground by actually interacting with computer animation software as low-fi 3D scans. Playing with the entire concept of the technology, Hippo Campus create their own virtual reality playground for the techy new “western kids” video, released via The Creator’s Project today.

“We met Najeeb through our label Transgressive and fell in love with his portfolio. His style of animation had this really raw vibe about it that felt really unique.” The band explains. “It seemed perfect for us to convey the blurred lines of reality that “western kids” critiques in “age of excess.”
