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


Showcase presenters:


Miriam Ross and Raqi Syed (Victoria University of Wellington)

“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

Mobile phones have evolved rapidly from a communication device to a creative and educational tool.  The current mediascape can be described as a dynamic ecosystem that has seen the emergence of new media aesthetics and formats, such as iPhoneography and mobile-mentary (mobile documentary) filmmaking. For communities world-wide mobile technologies provide access to a vast amount of new services. where is my ip . (Mobile phone) users (or rather pro-d-users), artists, designers, filmmakers and independent creatives can define new modes of mobile media practices transcending the realm of established disciplines and transforming the contemporary mediascape. The participatory turn in media culture (collaboration, co-creation and crowd-sourcing) creates new opportunities and challenges for visual communication design. Mobile devices enable us to see the world from new viewpoints and angles.

(Advanced registration essential due to limited capacity:

On the 16th June, Te Papa hosted a one-off screening of a selection of creative works made for mobile phones, using mobile phones by Laurent Antonczak and Max Schleser.

Laurent presented music videos designed for small screens, including New Day Interactive, a kinetic music video that responds to user’s mobile phone movements, and Hamster Squaredance, an interactive music video that uses embedded QR codes (Quick Response barcodes that can be read by mobile phones).

Max showed two mobile-mentaries (mobile documentaries) made using mobile phones; Max with a Keitai, a film shot entirely on two mobile phones in Japan in 2006, and Ekaterinburg, a short mobile-mentary about the Heartbeat Festival in the Russian city of Ekaterinburg.

Both Laurent and Max were present at the screenings to discuss their work, and also ran a digital media workshop focusing on mobile film production at Massey University during the weekend following the Te Papa event, (June 17th to 19th 2011) .
