Episode #10 A Taste Of Spark With Raymond Leung

On our 10th Episode of Taste of Spark, we had the opportunity to speak with creator Raymond Leung.  Based in Sydney, Australia, Raymond has been involved with Augmented Reality since 2012, helping consumers build more engaging content.  He starts working with brands by first creating a concept so they can have a taste of AR and how it works. He also reaches out to other creators to collab, and he is always looking to lend a hand to those who are embarking on their own AR projects.

This episode is a little different than our norm because Raymond gave us some BTS insight on how he creates images. We received a look into Raymond’s computer as he shared his screen while demonstrating how to make filters. 

Raymond’s advice?  Keep making content and keep experimenting!

Episode #9 A Taste Of Spark with Eugene Soh

On our 9th Episode of Taste of Spark, we had the pleasure of speaking in person with Eugene Soh, a very talented creator from our home base in Singapore!  On the show, Eugene talks about artistic expression as a creator, also highlighting the importance of aesthetics. He states that people normally don’t care about how long it takes to make a filter, but only how it looks when using it.

Eugene makes a good point - filter creation is a form of art, and with all art there comes a piece of vulnerability or sense of “self” with each creation.   We love your outlook, Eugene!

Oh - and make sure to check out Eugene’s filters; he’s known for stepping outside of the box and creating filters on images (even nipples!!). 

We hope you enjoy!

Episode #8 of A Taste Of Spark with Marc Wakefield

On our 8th Episode of Taste of Spark, we had the pleasure of speaking with Marc Wakefield, a badass creator all the way from London!  He has been working hand in hand with Spark AR for two years now, and also works for himself, making AR effects for a plethora of clients.  This former recruiter/graphic designer is self taught —through tutorials, mentors, and learning by example.

Rather than working with an agency, March is a one man show - this means he has more freedom and even more direct relationships with clients. His business has a personal touch.

Marc’s experience and expertise is top notch.  He has worked with big clients such as U2, with the band’s filter used every night on their tour. (190 million impressions on FB!)  He also works with smaller brands, and is an amazing mentor/example for beginning creators.

In general, Marc would like to see Facebook AR progress into eyewear, and he encourages everyone to keep helping each other out.  Not only does this create a more tight knit community, but helps bring the world closer together.s

Marc, you rock!
