“In their new roles, Scot, Tim and Sergi bring decades of experience, leadership and crucial knowledge to HYPERREAL®’s quickly growing sectors of innovation,” says CEO Remington Scott. “Their work at HYPERREAL® is enabling us to realize our wildest dreams in the creation and implementation of a world class digital human platform and creator ecosystem across virtual reality, the Metaverse and far beyond, as well as how it all interfaces with Web3.”
The executive appointments follow remarkable momentum for HYPERREAL®. Last year the company received a strategic investment from leading global entertainment company CJ ENM. This was followed by the closing of an oversubscribed $7 million seed funding round with investors that included South Korean MMORPG gaming giant Pearl Abyss entertainment industry disruptor ZASH Global Media, Jaeson Ma and Vincent Butta. Those investments led directly to HYPERREAL® projects that became trending topics on Twitter. HYPERREAL® created a digital twin of Madison Beer for a Metaverse virtual concert by Sony’s Immersive Music Entertainment and Verizon, which won a Webby Award. HYPERREAL® also co-produced the landmark Paul McCartney/Beck video "Find My Way" where the former Beatle appeared as his younger self. More recently, HYPERREAL®’s work on Sky’s The Limit with the Christopher Wallace Estate garnered 22 million views across multiple platforms simultaneously including Facebook and Meta’s Horizon Venues in VR.
HYPERREAL®’s creation of world class digital twins, known as HyperModel®s, for top talent and brands is unlocking an expansive new realm of opportunity. Designed to be owned and monetized by talent, brands and ultimately everyone, HyperModel®s are interoperable across digital platforms including mobile, interactive applications, augmented reality, virtual reality, social media, and immersive screen displays.
