Virtual Reality Technical Producer & Co-Founder of Oculus Story Studio

REQUEST BOOKING INFORMATION

 Maxwell Planck Biography

After graduating from MIT with a degree in Computer Science, Max joined Pixar as a technical director, solving the creative technical problems of making six animated feature films (Cars, WALL•E, Up, Brave, Monsters University, and The Good Dinosaur).

After 10 years, as amazing as Pixar is and will continue to be, Max felt that the technical problems of making a computer-animated film had been worked out. So, he left to find his next adventure and help build something novel, awe-inspiring and unsolved.

Max has found that challenge in virtual reality storytelling. This is what he was looking for, the next leap in how we tell stories and touch our audiences. There are enough technical and creative problems worthy of solving for the rest of his career and beyond.

As the technology and feature animation production specialist, Max and his co-founders joined the Oculus team to build Oculus Story Studio, a small team of technical artists from film and games bent on inspiring and educating the next generation of storytellers. They believe that virtual reality is the next great medium for telling meaningful stories that will shape our world culture.

Oculus Story Studio created Lost (Technical Supervision by Max) and Henry (Produced by Max), two of the first immersive shorts.
