Event description

Description

We know frontier technologies like VR can be confusing and overwhelming — that’s why we created the VR101 workshop. In the space of an hour, attendees learn about the fundamentals of virtual reality, different types of VR content, the future of the industry, and best practices for storytelling. We’ll also explain the costs associated with creating VR, and what a typical timeline looks like. We demo both 360 and room-scale content and wrap up by walking through a sample pitch to demonstrate how the creative scope might come together. This should give agency folks the tools they need to bring us in to sell their clients on VR projects.

Friends With Holograms provides education, creative strategy, and technical expertise in virtual reality for brands, agencies, and entertainment companies. A full-service agency, we explain everything from the in’s and out’s of the medium to the latest tech developments, all while connecting our clients with the right partners to achieve their creative visions and deliver great content.
