When done well, these experiences can be brilliant and pleasurable, but when done badly, they can result in frustration and sickness. In this free 3-hour workshop Jason Jerald, author of "The VR Book: Human-Centered Design for Virtual Reality" and Co-Founder & Principal Consultant of NextGen Interactions, through a combination of use cases and demonstrations will show how users perceive and intuitively interact with various forms of reality, discuss the causes of VR sickness, and demonstrate how to employ useful and pleasing content to create an immersive experience. When you leave the workshop, you will understand virtual reality from the human experience perspective, allowing you to better create – or simply appreciate – powerful VR applications, whether for entertainment, education, science, healthcare, or the myriad of other uses of this new and exciting technology. This workshop is for everyone, whether a developer, content creator, filmmaker, or simply someone interested in knowing more about VR. Instructor: JASON JERALD, PhD, world’s foremost authority on human-centered design and author of best seller “The VR Book” ------------- “INTRO TO 360 FILMMAKING: A STEP-BY-STEP DEMONSTRATION“ ( "Intro to 360 Filmmaking: A Step-by-Step Demonstration" uses lecture, live filming demonstrations, and hands-on labs to cover: - Why 360? - What equipment do you need? - How does producing video in 360 differ from traditional video? - What are the steps and challenges of planning and filming a 360 movie? - How is post production different from standard video? - How do you distribute a 360 video? In these free 3-hour workshops, Mike Cuales, Creative Director at NC State University, demonstrates the creation of a 360 video by stepping through pre-production, production, post and distribution. When you leave the workshop, you will have a working knowledge of 360 video production and the skills to go out and start producing your own experiences.
