Who is addressed:
Open to everybody, no particular skills needed. Just bring your personal expertise and curiosity.

What you’ll learn:
How to shoot movies with 360° cameras. How to export them to VR headsets.

In the workshop we experiment with the emerging 360° cameras. These new technologies, now available for a broader user group, come up with a lot of interesting questions: how do we create moving image content, when there is no fixed camera angle? what are the implications for performing arts, storyboarders, actors and directors? Together we play with the cameras, shoot short movies and try to export them to VR headsets.
