The resurgence of virtual reality is driving the emergence of a new form of filmed entertainment, immersive video. In Los Angeles and beyond, a passionate and growing community of creatives and technologists are laying the groundwork for this new medium, devising new production and storytelling techniques in a pioneering fashion not all that dissimilar from the trailblazers of cinema nearly a century ago.
This group is intended to bring together that community here in Los Angeles, and to encourage knowledge sharing, collaboration, and serendipity amongst our members. Vrideo will be hosting a bimonthly meetup and mixer at which members of this community will present their latest work, discuss key topics facing the industry, and have the opportunity to network with others who share their enthusiasm for this new medium.
This group is open to anyone interested and involved in immersive video, including but not limited to...
o Producers of live action and animated immersive video
o Panoramic camera manufacturers
o Stitching and post-production software developers
o Positional audio engineers
o Immersive video actors and performers
o Virtual reality headset manufacturers
o Investors and entertainment executives looking to finance immersive video production and ventures
