Event description


Intro to 360 Filmmaking

Since the release of the first motion picture camera in the 1890's, humans have been using video to tell compelling stories. Film is an expression of the human imagination, it enables us to see the world from another perspective and escape from our own lives. 360 video and virtual reality are the newest mediums for telling our stories.

Whenever another medium arsises a unique opportunity presents itself: to set a new paradigm and influence the next generation of storytellers. In this 3-day workshop, you will learn the basics of 360 filmmaking and create a short 360 video. You will go through the full pre-production to distribution process, learning techniques and the evolving best practices. Upon completion, you will have a foundation of skills and knowledge to begin your journey as a 360 filmmaker.
