NEW YORK — Production company Tool (www.toolofna.com) has signed Los Angeles-based director Kevin Cornish to its roster. In 2014, Cornish founded Image Theory, a 3D animation company specializing in digital marketing content, working with clients such as Apple and Taylor Swift. In 2015, he founded VR agency Moth + Flame, where he has partnered with brands and clients that included MTV, Google, and AT&T.
In addition to his VR and brand work, Cornish is also known for feature film work, including executive producing Barely Lethal and co-producing Are We Done Yet? and Beyond A Reasonable Doubt. Cornish’s first project for Tool is Fall in Love VR, which was financed by Oculus Studios and inspired by the New York Times piece, The 36 Questions That Lead to Love (and Arthur Aron’s study The Experimental Generation of Interpersonal Closeness).
“I could not be happier with the strides that the world of virtual reality has been producing,” says Cornish. “Tool is unrivaled in its commitment to innovation in storytelling, and I could not be happier to collaborate with them on this project and officially join the team.”
