The week we’re #ForTheThrone (05.04.19)

Brace yourselves…

Ahead of the long-awaited FINAL series of Game of Thrones (a sad reality for many of us), we created ‘The Dead Must Die’ Magic Leap experience and ‘Beyond the Wall’ VR experience (the third VR experience that Framestore have created for Game of Thrones). The experiences are in select AT&T stores from April 1st. More to come soon!

World Innovation and Creativity Week

World Innovation and Creativity Week is organised by the UN as a way to encourage people to use creativity to problem solve their 2015 Sustainable Development Goals.

In honour of this, Amy Smith & Katie Thorne (LDN) worked with thirty 12-13 year olds from Walthamstow School for Girls to research and invent a solution to a community problem. The girls then worked up pitches to present to the London team today. Framestore will then help develop the winning pitch with the girls.

Of course they also had a little fun with our VR experience!

So, if you’re lucky enough to be a golden ticket holder already it might be worth selling yours and waiting a week… Make it rain.
