topic icon Filming close protection scenes and interview for Viewnet VR project

Continuing our project with 3C Research entitled Viewnet, we have just wrapped filming on the second of three scenarios for demonstrating the uses of a technical project relating to geo-tagging in VR for the University of Bristol.

We were joined on-set at Trimstone Manor in Devon, by Gerhard Heger, who works in security and close protection, for an interview about his work. He also acted out a VIP security scenario with 'Bill Clinton', played by local lookalike actor Trevor 'toes' Lumley.

The aim of the security/close protection scenario was to demonstate the use of geo-tagging in Virtual Reality of up to date information on escape or safe routes within a building for someone unfamiliar with the route.
