Virtual reality is already the next big thing in filmmaking - not as an experimental futuristic idea but as a new way to tell stories, not only on mobile devices but also in newly VR-equipped cinemas around the world. Come join Sohail Dahdal on a journey into the future. This masterclass will introduce you to ways of telling stories using virtual reality technologies, augmented reality app creation, and 360° videography, breaking the fourth wall in VR cinema. Learn about the latest tools used in making VR cinema, new methods to enhance the audience experience, and gain insight into this fast-developing industry. This talk is open to the public but is best suited for established filmmakers with projects in development and open for new ways of telling their stories.
