Cinema and Virtual Reality
2 - 4 June 2017

Post-Digital Laboratory 2017
The Red House Centre for Culture and Debate

What will you learn?
How could we define the idea of "immersive cinema" and how would we tackle the process of creating a Virtual Reality (VR) film? This workshop will introduce participants, through a combination of theory and practice, to the process of creating of VR cinema.

The workshop will look at the idea of "immersion", how "spacial development of cinematic ideas" works, and will teach them how to develop ideas and scripts for VR films.

During the workshop, participants will create their own 360° film, from idea to finished product.
