VR & 360 Video for Newbies
(Melissa Bosworth, Laura Hertzfeld, Lakshmi Sarah, Adaora Udoji, Julie Young)
The projections for the growing VR/AR market are in the trillions over the next decade. Much of that depends on the evolution of content and content creation. Who’s creating the content for users? This growing industry will be dependent on a variety of storytelling and producing skill sets and there are many opportunities for women and gender variant creators to break in. Whether you’re a journalist looking to expand your storytelling toolbox, or a screenwriter who wants to write original content for new technology, this interactive session is for you. Our panelists will discuss why VR, why now, and how to get started in the field, from pre-production to post-. Then, over lunch, there will be an interactive workshop based on a case study of a short piece of content.
Online sign up has closed. Paper copies of workshop, speed pitch, and Saturday lunch table sign-ups will be at registration on Saturday. If there was a workshop or a panel you were hoping to attend, you are welcome to show up in person and a volunteer will check if there is space available.
