Producing virtual reality experiences

Are you interested in making virtual reality experiences but not sure where to start? This workshop will demystify the creative and experimental process behind making narrative 360 and interactive virtual reality experiences. You will hear about a possible production framework, learning how this adapts for the requirements of different projects. Anetta Jones leads the workshop; she has produced five virtual reality experiences to date and co-produced a further three. She will also explain how other established disciplines can inform the innovative workflow behind this new medium. The session will be interactive and participants are encouraged to ask questions throughout.

→ Multimedia / film producers interested in making virtual reality experiences but finding the landscape and/or workflow confusing

→ Interactive storytellers who want to understand the virtual reality production process and how narrative comes in to play

→ Developers / creative technologists who are interested in understanding the narrative virtual reality workflow and where coding fits in

Other requirements Participants are expected to bring their smartphones, chargers and headphones. Further instructions in preparation for the workshop will be provided upon application.
