A Craftsman of Dream Worlds
Danny Bittman is a self-described virtual reality artist, filmmaker, and developer but that barely relates what he actually does. He makes whole words from voxels, brainwaves, and dreams. Using VR creation tools like Tilt Brush and Blocks, he has created immersive experiences for Marvel, Google, Hyundai, Nvidia, and more. He was also part of Google’s pioneering artist-in-residence program. Currently, he animates and directs freelance projects such as Taryn Southern’s innovative “Life Support”
Bittman wants to help all creatives discover their potential with immersive tools
His background is in narrative and special effects. He starting writing about VR very early on, but just as a bystander, once he took the plunge he was surprised that he was able to create so much with first just generation technology. He’s shared his journey as he’s experimented with tools, technique and practices as fast as he’s learned it with the intention of helping others discover their potential with immersive tools that often seemingly defy the impossible.

I'm creating a music video for an old song I wrote in college 🙂 This was all made today in #VR with #ANIMVR. The final video will be about two minutes long, which I'll hopefully share next week. Here's to sharing more personal projects with ya'll this year 🍻 pic.twitter.com/WUwFpqRe1L— Danny Bittman (@DannyBittman) March 23, 2019
By utilizing the upcoming VR creation tool #ANIMVR, I choreographed a 10-minute #VR music video and performed inside of it live at @marketo's #MKTGnation Summit. The environments were built with #TiltBrush, and it was all rendered in #Unit3d. Created with @heliosinteract pic.twitter.com/Q49yqgB8jS— Danny Bittman (@DannyBittman) April 30, 2018
