The project

Tapping into our breadth of contacts in the creative industries, we reached out to BBC Click, pitching the incredible advancements in virtual production technology made by Shocap Entertainment. BBC Click covers some of the world’s most exciting technological innovations, which made Shocap the perfect match. 

The world’s first broadcasted XR-Jazz show

BBC Click saw incredible potential in our tailored pitch, offering Shocap the opportunity to fill a globally broadcasted slot on Christmas Day. Grammatik then mediated talks between Shocap and the BBC, assisting in the concept and planning for Shocap’s involvement. The team settled on an XR Jazz performance with Canadian singer Jill Barber – the first ever shown on television.
