It’s one thing to see photos or even watch a two-dimensional video of a student housing complex you’re interested in.
But what if you could experience what it’s like to walk around the apartment, sit by the pool and even play cornhole with other students on the property—from anywhere in the world? Or even well before the property is built?
Rami Kalla is Founder of Point in Time Studios, an award-winning video production company and marketing firm that creates engaging content, photo-realistic renderings and VR tours for several well-known brands in the student housing space.
