OUR JOURNEY

From chasing superyachts in helicopters  to

leading edge 3D visualisation, the journey of

R E D // R E D has been quite the ride.

FOUNDER

At the forefront of visual technology. 

R E D // R E D founder Jake Hawkins is an internationally distributed film maker, broadcast music video director and 3D motion design specialist.

"I was an early adopter of camera tech and used to travel the globe flying drones and shooting with gimbal mounted cameras in their infancy. I've always loved being at the forefront of visual technology, being an early adopter of game changing advancements.

 

Advancements in real time photorealistic rendering software and hardware, AI machine learning and delivery platforms such as Apple Vision Pro is putting 3D imaging at the fore once again, and I am

so excited to be a part of it."
