Known for his captivating special effects in movies like Ironman and Pirates of the Caribbean series, Raffael Dickreuter has been hired by Snapchat as their new “Concept and Augmented Reality Designer.” It is no secret that Snapchat’s “secret project” using their proprietary AR sunglasses will likely play a large role in whatever Dickreuter has been hired to do. His portfolio in design and development of special effects includes 360 degree video, 3D experiences, and virtual reality projects, which would nicely compliment Snapchat’s other recent hire of Oculus’ user research lead, Gareth Griffiths. Nevertheless, the industry remains in the dark as to what plans exactly are in the works for this mysterious partnership. Neither Snapchat nor Dickreuter are talking.
