Yesterday, the Tilt Five system made an exciting appearance at the residence of British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak (aka Number 10 Downing Street).
Scotland-based Blazing Griffin received an invitation directly from Downing Street to present their work for Burns Night (a celebration of famed Scottish poet Robert Burns on his birthday).
Blazing Griffin is an award-winning media company that does games, film and post-production work. Tilt Five is proud to be their partners on several Tilt Five projects including Murder Mystery Machine (EDIT: and the recently announced Takenoko - Tilt Five AR).
The Burns Night celebration was held with much fanfare and flair at the Downing Street residence and Neil McPhillips, Blazing Griffin's co-Head of Games was there to present to Members of Parliament as well as the Prime Minister and his wife, Akshata Murthy. Blazing Griffin was the sole representative for the category of games, film and TV.
"Entering into Number 10 Downing street was a pretty big deal!" said McPhillips. "We got special security clearance to take in laptops and tech so went through that whole process but once we were in it was surreal to wander around the building."
Phones were not permitted at the residence, which is a shame as the whole residence is a bit of a British museum onto itself. "There is a huge amount of gifts from other countries and artefacts from history around the building... Probably the most interesting were some little moon rocks that were a gift from America."
McPhillips showed off the Tilt Five and the residence's official photographer Simon Walker grabbed Murthy's reaction perfectly when she tried the Tilt Five system.
"Generally though Tilt Five took centre stage as we ran people through some of the tech demos as well as our past and upcoming projects on the platform," said McPhillips. "It never gets old seeing people’s reaction when they first put on those glasses!"
