VR is changing the way we produce films. Remember the times when we used to make 360 videos by manually assembling goPros together? Or when we were still beginning to think of how to tell stories in VR? A lot has changed since then, and a lot has changed in ourselves as well. As film consumers, we can now understand, expect, and demand high-quality VR content. As creators, we can now have easy and affordable access to VR Headsets, cameras, and postproduction tools. And you know what makes all of these facts even more thrilling? That we have only started scratching the surface of the immense potential of VR when it comes to filmmaking.

In this edition of VRVienna, we have joined forces with the Filmakademie Wien, and the IVRPA organization to explore together the topic of film production in VR. This month’s speakers will share with us some advanced insights into the process of VR filmmaking. Each of the talks will focus on a different aspect of producing a VR film. From theater to feature films. From traditional filmmaking to location-based entertainment. From art to business. From fact to fiction. Get ready for quite a unique Meetup!


• Sebastian Brauneis & Stefanie Schmitt (Kunst Uni Wien & Uni Wien) — Dramaturgy and Directing in VR

• Axel Dietrich & Martin Stegmayer (vrisch) — Location-Based Entertainment VR

• Sebastian Endler (Amilux film) — Making Cinematic VR

• Virgil Widrich & Martin Reinhart (tx-reverse) — Transforming time and space in cinema and VR


After the talks segment, we’re going to engage into a thought-provoking panel discussion in which the speakers will examine the present and future of VR filmmaking together, as well as answer all our questions. Get your questions ready!


This Meetup comes with a bonus. We will not only hear from the film projects of these extraordinary VR creators, but we’re also going to have the chance of checking out their film projects! And a super extra bonus point? There will be popcorn. Seriously!
