Dimension was founded in Gateshead as one of the world’s first XR content studios.
The location, skills and infrastructure provided a springboard for the growth of our company over the last five years.
We were attracted by the strong local talent base and rich heritage in 3D games development and by the exciting vision and commitment of Gateshead Council to become a leading hub for immersive technologies.
Their investment into facilities such as Proto, and more recently the exciting plans for Gateshead Quays, are great examples of how Gateshead Council continues to build the infrastructure to really drive and support innovation and future commercial success – not just locally but on the world stage.
Dimension was launched by Hammerhead VR in 2017 as a state-of-the-art volumetric capture and digital humans studio in partnership with Digital Catapult and Microsoft, to shape the future of entertainment, and has since grown to four studios including two mobile film stages operating internationally
In 2020, Hammerhead VR and volumetric capture studio, Dimension, combined under the Dimension brand, in a move that further advances our volumetric and XR production ambitions.
