Piers Mussared is the Head of Production at Jumpgate Virtual Reality, a production studio based out of
Adelaide and Melbourne that specialises in producing virtual reality content.
Originally from a background in Science, Piers joined animation company Convergen in 2010 to develop spectacular computer-generated 3D environments. Given his background and interest in photography from an early age, Piers found the unique skill set exceptionally useful and in developing visual effects skills, began leading animation projects on short films, architectural animations and a range of other media projects. Piers led creative teams on major infrastructure works from construction tender stage right through to completion, from train stations and rail developments in Victoria, to windfarms in South Australia, to tunneling clients in NSW. In 2014, Piers led a team from Convergen as the virtual reality arm was restructured as Jumpgate Virtual Reality. The purpose of this restructuring was to allow the Virtual Reality works to grow independently and has been a successful transition. Piers was a key part of the change, having been involved in augmented and virtual reality research and implementation on a number of projects at Convergen, and moved directly into the role of Head of Production. In the 2 years following the formation of the company, Piers has led over 60 projects, from research and development through to major projects for AFL clubs, the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, government departments and narrative works in variousgenres. In doing so, he has become an experienced DOP and director of virtual reality and directed Screen Australia’s first Virtual Reality piece, Madeleine, which has been screened at the Adelaide and Sydney Film Festivals. He continues to explore the new language of storytelling in VR and it’s rapidly evolving production techniques.
