Learn Virtual Reality Filmmaking at Media ASYLUM

img_1331

Virtual Reality is one of the most exciting technologies emerging today. Go to any technology or content creation exhibition and the VR booths are the ones that capture the crowd. We are also starting to see VR content being included amongst film festivals.

The idea of immersing ourselves in a alternative world and interacting with things in 3D space; things that would previously exist either on a screen or in our imagination; is a unique and truly captivating sensory experience that most of us have not participated in before.

Producing Virtual Reality content may, at first glance, seem a complex task but in reality, the key concepts are within the grasp of anyone with basic media production knowledge.

The ‘Cinematic 360 Production for Virtual Reality Experience’ course is something new at Media ASYLUM and is being introduced for the first time this year as a result of requests from many media practitioners in the industry.

The short 3-day course is intended to equip participants with the necessary basic skill sets required to start producing and capturing cinematic 360 VR content. It teaches how to plan and script for a VR shoot, understand the various 360 camera rigs that are available and knowledge of VR headsets and content distribution. Most of all, it focuses on how VR offers a different and unique way of story-telling from the more traditional forms that are currently used.

Leading the course is Lionel Chok, Creative Technologist at iMMERSiVELY, a creative startup specialising in immersive technologies, such as Augmented, Virtual and Mixed Reality for corporates and businesses. With a background in television production and a passion for Augmented and Virtual Reality, Lionel offers participants a wealth of knowledge and experience to tap on.
