Principal Filmmaker for VR at Google

Guest Bio

JESSICA BRILLHART is an American filmmaker and tech influencer whose longtime interest has been exploring the intersection of media and technology.

In 2009, she joined Google's Creative Lab where she spearheaded numerous award winning shorts and documentaries before joining the company's VR team in 2015. Today she is widely known for her pioneering efforts in virtual reality theory and for her growing body of live-action VR work at Google.

Brillhart was the first person to field test the 16-camera Google Jump rig that was the prototype for the GoPro Odyssey. Since directing, WORLD TOUR – the first VR film made with the Jump ecosystem – she has continued traveling the world, filming and experimenting, all in an effort to better understand and help inform others about this emergent medium.
