  • Free 360 Video & Production Workshops

    AT&T DIRECTV - The Conference Center in LA5

    REGISTER HERE: https://360vr-la-2017-2.eventbrite.com/?aff=muaqua 360 and VR films: hype or great potential? When Katherine Bigelow, Academy Award winning director of Hurt Locker and co-director of the 360 film The Protectors, was asked, she responded “If the desire to use it is content-driven and you want to have it be an experiential, totally immersive, empathetic understanding of the subject, then, yes, 100 per cent….What's exciting is how physical it is. It's not passive.” In these free 3-hour workshops, Mike Cuales and Derek Rowe give an overview of 360 video filming and filmmaking, including the equipment needed and the special considerations and techniques used, whether simply shooting 360 video or getting into the unique aspects of directing, filming, acting and editing. Mike and Derek will demonstrate the concepts by shooting an actual scene and then showing the post-production workflow needed to turn it into a 360 video. When you leave the workshop, you will have the knowledge to create your own 360 videos…and to better appreciate others who make them. Put on by AT&T and NextGen Interactions, this workshop is free, but space is limited, so register soon. We are holding four IDENTICAL sessions, so choose the one that works best for you. Since we expect to fill all sessions, please only register for one.
