Robin Schmidt aka SuperMassive is the founder and CEO of BasedAF. Multi-award winning film director and creative. That dude what ran an ULTRAmarathon in VR Chat. Sponsored by FRAZ, the No1 beverage in the Metaverse.

He's also that dude what produced killer YouTube videos with The Defiant all through DeFi summer and the NFT run from 2021.

I travelled out from Amsterdam to the BasedAF offices just outside of The Hague. Where I had the opportunity to have a look at the volume where they produce live action content in virtual reality and game engines with a motion capture suit. Doing wild things with facial capture and live streaming, and amazingly short production time thanks to a custom built camera which films the VR space in real time.

We talk about storytelling and his creative journey. How he got into the web3 space and later joined The Defiant as director of video to produce a whole series I was watching at my place back in Australia.

How he’s since stepped out of the crypto world, jumping into another industry that’s at the edges: The Metaverse. Fucking about with what’s possible, and experimenting with virtual content creation. All of this and more!
