Demystifying Virtual Reality
“Demystifying Virtual Reality” in collaboration with Film New Europe and Proto Invention Factory is a hands-on workshop for filmmakers and enthusiasts, who are interested in what the future brings to the audiovisual medium. During the two intense days, participants will discover how to apply their creativity and to make pieces that speak to audiences on a completely different level through Virtual Reality. Participants will have a chance to learn from the experience of VR creators from around the world, who share their personal journeys through case studies. No previous encounter with VR required but previous film-making background is an asset.
The two-day workshop is lead by Rein Zobel (Maru VR) and Angel Urbina Vitoria (Iralta VR)
