Google Spotlight Stories is an Oscar nominated, Emmy award-winning platform for immersive stories. Together with our partners at Google and partner studios, DigitalFish artists and technologists have explored narrative in mobile 360, VR and room-scale VR headsets, and the innovative tech that makes it possible. Providing a broad range of services from engine and authoring-tools development, to pipeline integration, to story production and external-studio support, DigitalFish was a central contributor to Spotlight Stories from its inception within Motorola’s ATAP group.

“Since its inception, Spotlight Stories strove to re-imagine VR storytelling. From ambitious shorts like ‘Son of Jaguar,’ ‘Sonaria’ and ‘Back to The Moon’ to critical acclaim for ‘Pearl’ (Emmy winner and first-ever VR film nominated for an Oscar) the Spotlight Stories team left a lasting impact on immersive storytelling. We are proud of the work the team has done over the years.”
