If you know me or have seen me speak on stage about this fantastic industry that we work in, you will often hear me talking about “This was created for me”, content that appeals to me and my demographic. I am always on the hunt that content that really speaks to me. VR content that literally makes me scream ‘YES – this is what I have been waiting for’. I have also spoken before about looking for a great example of series, letting the story continue and knowing that there is more coming. If you like short spurts of knowledge, stories, and inspiration…
As a young entrepreneurial woman, I want to be inspired and eagerly look for content within VR that does that. If you are like me, then I would recommend checking out The Female Planet.
The Female Planet is a new VR series from Google VR and Surround Vision. This series explores five extraordinary women with careers in science, technology, sports, and the arts. You can follow them as they take you through their day to day routines. This experience gives you a glimpse inside their workplaces and you get to hear why they chose the paths they are on now.
I am big fan of Surround Vision, it’s great to see them working with Mary Matheson too. It might be because this industry feels like a big family, but I always love seeing companies grow and develop. (Feeling like the proud mum cheering on from the sidelines).
“If I can see it, I can be it”
I asked Mary about this fantastic new project and why she is excited by it:
“I’m a total advocate of “If I can see it, I can be it”, which means that if girls and young women can see other women in any role in life they will believe those jobs will also be open to them. The Female Planet aims to immerse viewers in the lives of successful women and therefore open new worlds to young women everywhere. The idea is that by widening the pool of female role models visible to them, it would normalise female leadership in all walks of life.
“This was created for me”
