CAA has signed its first fully Virtual Reality director. Kevin Cornish, who has established himself as a leader in directing high-end, cinematic VR, putting together content for brands ranging from IBM, Google, Oculus, Discovery, MTV, AT&T, Ram Truck and AMD and has worked with such talent including Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss, has signed with the agency. It will also rep his company Moth + Flame, a full-service virtual reality agency.
