James broke the world record for a live VR experience at Londons Comic Con, with his social video collaborations for the British Red Cross playing the Pyaramid stage at Glastonbury, recent collaborations featured at Museum of the Moving Image New York, V&A, Tate Modern, London Design Festival, Boomtown Festival, Aesthetica, MozFest, Mobile World.
