Presenter: Dylan Pearce

This workshop will give participants an understanding of virtual reality filmmaking and how to tell stories within a VR environment. Using examples, Dylan will show how virtual reality has the power to create completely different experiences from those created by 2D or 3D viewing. Topics covered will include:

  • How to direct an audience in VR
  • Soundscaping directional storytelling
  • Moving the camera and getting away with it
  • Differences in 360 vs VR storytelling
  • Creating a personal experience with your audience
  • The VR rules you need to know before you break them

Feeling like you’re living within a story rather than seeing it unfold in front of you opens up a new frontier in storytelling where new approaches and methods need to be developed. How do you craft the role of the audience member in the story? How do you direct in a 3D world, and how does interaction become narrative? These questions and more will be explored in this fascinating look at virtual reality storytelling.
