Concept Development

Used by journalists, documentary makers, wildlife activists, artists, educators and small businesses, Story Spheres was created with a view to give 360 degree content a platform of its own.

The project was first prototyped by the Grumps team with the help of Google's Creative Lab in 2014, predicating the rise of 360 degree content.

In June of 2017 the cool cats at the Google News Lab helped us give the platform a facelift, opening up the experience to different devices and technology and helping all publishers (from journos to newsrooms and lego bloggers) create and brand immersive audio experiences.

It's a story about stories: the ones we can create with a little imagination, and the new and exciting ways we can tell them. Shit yeah.

Next Project

Grumpy Sailor operates on lands belonging to the Gadigal people of the Eora nation, and the Boon Wurrung and Woiwurrung (Wurundjeri) peoples of the Kulin nation.

We acknowledge these traditional owners and we pay our respects to leaders past, present and emerging.
