I'm curious by nature and have an insatiable drive to learn. I've spent many a night sacrificing sleep, for a late night session experimenting with new techniques, libraries, and plugins. Here are a few interesting experiments – the learnings from which have made their way into commercial projects.
Early on in my experience with VR I got a test up and running with Skybox Studio. It's a great plugin for After Effects and makes creating 360 video a breeze (sort of). And what better useless purpose to create a VR experience for, than an audio reactive visualizer set to a Beck song. The "walls" and colors react to the audio level in the song, as does the camera movement.
