Event description

Description

Black Women Film! Canada is excited to be partnering with Dames Making Games to offer our second

VR FILM CAMP
mulit-weekend workshop
as a part of the 2020 Elevate Master Class Series!

This exciting VR intensive program is aimed at introducing a small group of participants to the process of creating interactive virtual reality experiences using 360-degree volumetric video. In small groups or on their own, participants will complete an original interactive narrative short that can be experienced on an HMD (e.g., Oculus Quest or Rift), smart phone or desktop computer.

Over the course of one weekend, filmmakers dive into creating interactive virtual reality experiences
using volumetric video. Participants will learn about the VR landscape (hardware, software and
distribution), design basics, interactive narrative design vs. linear storytelling, and get hands-on with
their own projects.

their projects very quickly and in a collaborative, low-pressure, and highly supportive learning
