Virtual Engagements: Confronting Fears- Heights

Virtual Reality Therapy (VRT) allows the immersion of an individual into an environment that would otherwise be unsafe, unwise, or impractical for treatment of mental health issues. Creating a more effective protocol with level gradations and challenges that progress from animated sketches to realistic imagery with safeguards to escape to custom Serenity Levels allows for gradual engagement at the user’s discretion. This new hybrid method is known as Deferred Individualized Gradated Immersion Therapy (D.I.G.I.T.).

The commercial availability and affordability of virtual reality gear now allows for VRT to be an effective method that can be accessed worldwide with or without the help of a medical professional. Our product will be platform agnostic to break down some of the barriers of accessibility. We want to shatter the stigma and negativity associated with seeking treatment for mental health issues. Our content will address issues like phobias, PTSD, Autism, relaxation skills, stress relief, and diseases that afflict our elderly such as Alzheimer’s and Dementia among others. To meet our goals of outreach we plan to provide headsets and content to those more vulnerable populations like the homeless, incarcerated, underprivileged, or impoverished.

About

Timothy Porter is a technical artist, specifically a pipeline technical artist, who is more often than not also described as an efficiency expert at creating unified systems that promote faster, more intuitive and collaborative workflows for creative projects. With more than eight years in the entertainment industry, a bachelor’s degree in computer animation, a strong foundation in art and a mind sharp for technical details, Tim has used lessons learned from early-career gaming roles to develop his own methodologies for streamlining pipelines, optimizing multiple platforms and creating tools that make teams stronger and more efficient. A partner in ownership with his wife, Alexandria, in the LA-based Underminer Studios, Tim steers the technical side of the business. Even though Underminer Studios claims pipelines, optimization, automation and R&D as its forte, the intriguing work, according to Tim, is “delving into virtual and augmented reality with disciplines like architecture, medical simulations, military simulations, entertainment and the like.”
In Tim’s point of view: “We should use art and creative talent to solve real problems. While technology for entertainment gives enjoyment for all – and takes us to unimaginable places – when the experience ends, we’re often left with access to very little that betters our lives. With technology all around us, we could solve very real issues with just a difference of perspective.”
