    PLEASE REGISTER ON EVENTBRITE: “Humans & Virtual Reality”: https://vr-2-sf-2018.eventbrite.com/?aff=musve “Shooting 360 Video: A Step-by-step Demonstration”: https://360-2-sf-2018.eventbrite.com/?aff=musve ------------- These workshops are suitable for everyone. Note: each workshop is repeated so that you can choose the one that best suits your schedule. ------------- “HUMANS & VIRTUAL REALITY” (https://vr-2-sf-2018.eventbrite.com/?aff=musve) Without a clear understanding of the human side of virtual reality, the experience will always fail.” (Jason Jerald) Designing for virtual reality is an incredibly complex challenge. 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” (http://www.thevrbook.net/) ------------- “SHOOTING 360 VIDEO: A STEP-BY-STEP DEMONSTRATION“ (https://360-2-sf-2018.eventbrite.com/?aff=musve) "Shooting 360 Video: 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, Michael Wohl, author of The 360° Video Handbook: A step-by-step guide to creating video for virtual reality (VR) and Co-Founder, Talkingstick Productions, 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. Instructor: MICHAEL ROWE, author of “The 360° Video Handbook” (https://www.360videohandbook.com/) and Co-Founder, Talkingstick Productions -------------------------------------- In cooperation with AnnieCannons (www.AnnieCannons.org/) AnnieCannons is a 501(c)(3) software development consultancy which recruits and trains its developers from among local survivors of human trafficking.

    Plug and Play Tech Center

    FREE REGISTRATION REQUIRED: http://360vr-sf-2017.eventbrite.com/?aff=musve AFTERNOON & EVENING sessions available. 360 video and virtual reality are two of the hottest topics in entertainment right now, and what better way to get an overview of them than a free, 3-hour, hands-on AT&T workshop. Whether you are involved in filmmaking or video content creation, are a developer that wants to know about VR, or are just curious to know more about immersive 360-degree worlds, then this intro is for you! Afternoon session: 12 - 4 Evening session: 5 - 9 (Sessions are identical, so choose the one that works best for you.) These workshops are designed to be hands-on, with the instructor showing you the steps needed to take a 360 image and transform it so that you can view it with a VR headset. Then we will give you time to do this yourself by following the step-by-step instructions in the lab book we give you while experts walk around to help anyone that is having problems. We’ll also give you a cardboard VR viewer so you can look at your results, then it’s yours to keep. The workshop will explain the types of 360 experiences, whether virtual or not, and how they differ from regular video. We will then give you an overview of the equipment and techniques needed to capture 360 video. The hands-on labs will cover 1) adding interactive elements to a 360 image, 2) distribution of a 360 video, and 3) using the Unity platform to create a simple interactive VR application with pre-made drag-and-drop elements. When you walk out of the workshop you will understand the elements and the workflow needed to create a virtual world yourself.
