VR-Lab 1.0 – Makers Weekend
Saturday 12 & Sunday 13th November
A weekend of creating VR!
Following on from our August VR Lab 0 – VR Immersion and September’s VR Lab 0.5 – The Art & Science of VR, we’re excited to give you the chance to join our November VR Lab 1.0 – Makers Weekend, when you’re really going to roll up your sleeves and help create, prototype and shoot in 360°.
We’re looking for 8 stories to select for this 2-day prototyping Makers Weekend.
Storytellers? We’d like to invite you to apply with your story idea please.
Collaborators? We’d have room for 30 participants and know that a great team is more than the story idea, so we’re also looking for experience designers, cinematographers, film-makers, writers, storyboard artists, anybody who has already attended one of our VR Labs and is excited about joining a team.
We’ll be bringing in some experts in VR storytelling and directing, LARPing and experience design to help us prototype these 8 stories over 2 days and to inspire and guide you through the hands-on process.
No more sitting and just talking, this time we get our hands dirty and dig into 360° immersive storytelling!
Following our application process, 8 stories will be selected for team work and prototyping with our Samsung 360°- cameras. So send your story idea or apply to a be team-member/collaborator. Be prepared to challenge ideas on placement, immersion and experience design. Boost will be your theatrical space to test your characters’/players’ points of view.
Let’s dig in to VR together and make things happen.
The weekend will consist of:
- Lectures/talks about the cameras.
- Consideration points on camera/character placement, immersion, and experience design.
- Workshops with prototyping: Get your hands on the cameras and prototype scenes with your group.
When: 12-13 Nov. (Sat-Sun) 9.30-17.30
