For Secret Location, the story comes first. The studio combines cutting edge technology with traditional storytelling. While the team works with the latest in immersive media, they believe the technology is a conduit for the story, and choose the right platform for each narrative. Secret Location leaves the door open when it comes to new ideas and taking on projects, they never want to do the same thing twice.
With their innovation lab, the studio is able to explore disruptive technology while honouring and leveraging their interactive storytelling roots.
Secret Location is an Emmy award-winning Virtual Reality (VR) studio with offices located in Canada and the US. Founded in 2008, acquired by eOne in 2016 (eOne was then acquired by Hasbro in December 2019), the studio develops innovative experiences with immersive technology. Secret Location created the first original serialized VR narrative and is the first company in the world to win a Primetime Emmy Award for a VR project.
In addition to production, Secret Location developed Vusr, a suite of tools that offer solutions to help creators monetize and distribute their content to both at-home and out-of-home markets. In 2020, Secret Location was presented with the Outstanding Media Innovation Award for their work on Vusr by the Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television.
