An experienced executive producer, Bridget Scarr has worked in animation,content creation,drama, lifestyle, advertising, and television. After years of developing TV projects submitted by other people, she founded Colibri Studios in March of 2016. Based in London, Colibri gives her the opportunity to centralize her projects, which include digital content, virtual reality, and augmented reality. In addition to managing the day-to-day business of Colibri, Bridget is also a songwriter and singer. She is currently working on a novel and her first album. Bridget has a Bachelor of Arts from Rhodes University, where she studied Dance Choreography and Design.
Bridget’s routine consists of daily mediation, and a three hour session in the morning where she works in her office on writing content and doing research. She makes it a point to have lunch with her family every day, before returning to the office to work on other projects.
At the moment she is developing an augmented reality series dealing with events in history that are told through stories of real people who were involved. The stories are in a narrative format with elements that are factual and scripted. This will give users a real understanding of different points in history. She believes it’s important that users gain an emotional interaction with the stories. Bridget is excited about how virtual reality technology can be used in education, health care, and in enabling users to have a tactile experience. This could be especially useful in museum exhibitions.
Bridget’s first business was Pollen Creative Media, that she worked with for seven years. The business was forced to close down due to financial issues, and some of the partners eventually left to start a rival company. She credits her family and her faith in God in helping her to deal with this experience. She also hopes to express her appreciation to the people who tried to help out.
Bridget Scarr believes that you must work every day to be more creative, find time to laugh, and get inspired. Opportunities must be made to let creative people thrive and express their talents. When asked what book she would recommend for people to read, it was “Destressifying: The Real-World Guide to Personal Empowerment, Lasting Fulfillment, and Peace of Mind” by Davidji.
