Event description

Description


In the current era of VR development, storytelling is still very much in a nascent stage. As we surge ahead to produce compelling stories we explore new territory as well as draw upon familiar media. A number of unwritten rules are emerging about what we can and cannot do in 360 degree space. This workshop examines some of these rules—both thematic and technical—and provides a forum to think about how to break the rules. Raqi Syed and Miriam Ross will draw upon their recent experiences developing 360 content and the questions, problems, solutions and experiments that have emerged in the process.

During the workshop, participants will take part in hands-on activities using the Samsung Gear 360 toolkit. While the workshop will focus on 360 degree filmmaking for VR headsets, many of the issues tackled can also be applied to interactive VR environments. Experience for yourself what works and doesn’t work.

Future Realities is a leading event in the #Techweek17 programme.
