Event description

Description

Join Black Public Media and Ashley Baccus-Clark, co-founder of Hyphen-Labs, for our second VR mixer. We will be screening the new untethered version of NEUROSPECULATIVE AFROFEMINISM on Samsung Gear VR and Oculus Go. Since its debut at Sundance Film Festival in 2017, NSAF has only been only available for the Oculus Rift. In addition to completing the mobile version of NSAF, Hyphen-Labs designed the memorial wall for the National Safety Council's PRESCRIBED TO DEATH campaign, which just won six Cannes Lions in June 2018.


If you've never worn a VR headset before, this is the perfect meetup to learn more about the craft of VR filmmaking. Twenty-minute VR-viewing slots will be available on a first come, first served basis. Admission to the event will end at 7 pm. The VR line will close at 8 pm. The mixer ends at 8:30 pm.


Funded by Corporation for Public Broadcasting, MacArthur Foundation, and others, Black Public Media educates, mentors, and funds Black, independent filmmakers and programming about the Black experience from around the globe. In an effort to increase the amount of Black creatives working in VR, an industry in which African-Americans are vastly under-represented, BPM recently launched the BPM+ screening series in New York City.
