Event description

Description

News organizations and digital storytellers have been experimenting with an exciting new way of creating immersive 3D experiences.

You can learn how to capture detailed 3D models of real-world objects and spaces with just a digital camera and publish them online with Sketchfab on the afternoon of December 3.

This hands-on introductory workshop will take you through the basics of photogrammetry (creating 3D models from a set of digital photographs) and provide a step-by-step guide to share and embed your work online, complete with narrative elements like 3D annotations and audio.

Please bring a laptop. We'll provide light snacks.

Workshop Lead: Thomas Flynn, Cultural Heritage Lead & Community at Sketchfab. See his work at sketchfab.com/nebulousflynn and @nebulousflynn.

This workshop is designed for graduate students in journalism and creative technology.
