Workshop: VR & 360 video workshop

 

On Friday December 2 (2pm-4pm), MINA will hold a special VR showcase and workshop at Swinburne University.  The VR workshop is an open show and tell forum for participants to present their VR and 360 video projects, VR tools and technologies.

 

Nowadays mobile camera phones, smartphones and pocket cameras are ubiquitous. The aim of the 360 mobile video & mobile VR workshop is to experiment with smartphones as a creative tool and to discover the capabilities of this innovative form of visual storytelling. The 360 mobile video & mobile VR workshop will be organised in the form of an unconference sessions. Participants are asked to bring along any 360 mobile video or mobile VR tools and technologies. We will explore a framework built upon a mashup of Google services that empower user-generated 360 content creation, publishing and sharing, consisting of an ecology of resources that includes:

•Google Maps

•Google Cardboard & Daydream

•Google Street View

•Google Local Guides

•YouTube 360 Video

“Circle Versus Square: VR as the Third Experience”

For their experimental VR project that tests how the rectangle, as dominating visual framework in traditional screen culture, can be dismantled in favour of the sphere in virtual reality, Raqi Syed and Miriam Ross have been collaborating with Wellington performance group, Binge Culture, and Kevin Romond from Weta. One of the main aims of the project is to explore a particular way of utilizing the spherical virtual space — one in which the apparatus of production is preserved and exploited even —  as part of the storytelling process. The project has been utilising portable Samsung 360 cameras as well as custom building VR rigs to work with GoPro cameras and lightweight gimbals. Miriam and Raqi will discuss this work and, if possible, show footage emerging from the project. More information on the project can be found here http://circlevsquare.xyz/
