Company | Profile
If there’s a virtual reality film project you’ve seen and enjoyed, there’s a good chance it was made by Venice, California-based Wevr, a startup that, to date, has raised more than $25 million from a variety of well-known investors, including VR heavyweight HTC.
The startup, run by cofounders Neville Spiteri and Anthony Batt, is known for projects like theBlu and A-list film director Jon Favreau’s Gnomes and Goblins. Wevr’s big 2016 innovation was Transport, a cross-platform distribution platform for content regardless of whether it’s from Wevr or third-party content creators.
The 30-person company was founded in 2010 and goes head-to-head with other name-brand VR content creators like Jaunt, NextVR, Here Be Dragons, and others.
