Mixed reality producer, Jalina Stewart spent over 15 years working in the music industry, creating unique brand exposure opportunities on a variety of entertainment platforms, including webisodes and a digital reality docu-series for WSJ.com, commercial campaigns, and music videos for leading artists, including Prince, Sting, Bon Jovi, Snoop Dogg, Pharrell, and Mariah Carey.
Six years ago, she transitioned into the VR space, working with 360-film and VR platforms that provided viewers access to premium interactive video content, including using 360 camera footage to tell climate and science stories which were presented at SXSWEco.
