Kuju has appointed Audiomotion founder Mick Morris as business development director. The 17-year industry veteran originally founded Audiomotion in 2003 and headed up the motion capture studio as managing director until 2016. More recently, Morris has been working in a consultancy capacity, and will continue to do so alongside his new role at Kuju.
The move comes just a few months after the appointment of Brynley Gibson as the head of studio at Kuju Games and Kuju Enterprise, the company's new VR division that focuses on creating experiences outside of the traditional games business.
Kuju Enterprise recently completely development on a VR music video experience for The Chainsmokers' Paris single on behalf of Sony Music and Sony Corp. The Chainsmokers: Paris VR was released exclusively in the US on PS VR at the end of April, and a global release will follow later this year.
It is fantastic to be able to bring Mick into the business at this time of growth in both our Games and Enterprise divisions,” said Gibson. With his wealth of experience across the games and film industries it will allow us to increase our scope and ambition in what we are looking to achieve.”
Morris added: I had been talking with Brynley for a few months about coming onboard and, when I saw what the team had achieved with the hugely successful Chainsmokers Paris project, I was simply blown away. He is one of the few pioneers and experts in this business who truly understands the VR landscape. I'm very excited to be working alongside him as Business Development Director and together we will build on this success and continue to grow the games and enterprise side of the business."
