With initial investments from Comcast, HTC Vive, and Samsung, Baobab Studios now has reached a total of $31 million from additional high-profile investors. Not only have Horizon Ventures and Twentieth Century Fox joined the club, but also Larry Cutler, Pixar’s technical director for turn-of-the-century blockbusters, will be serving as Baobab’s chief technology officer. Baobab Studios, known for its shorts Invasion and Asteroids!, is the brainchild of two highly accomplished entertainment leaders in their own right. Eric Darnell, former Dreamworks director and screenwriter, and Maureen Fan, a transplant from mobile game developer Zynga, founded Baobab in 2015. Industry leaders are expecting revolutionary storytelling from Baobab Studios, referring to the virtual reality film company as “an innovator” in the industry.
