Virtual Reality is the most innovative medium these days. Storytelling is undergoing an evolutionary process, spatial narration requires old wisdoms and new skills, the relationship between narrator and audience has to be redefined.
The VR Creators’ Lab is Europe’s exclusive training and development lab for Virtual Reality and 360° Film. It provides an introduction to cutting-edge technical, aesthetical, methodical and psychological state of spatial narration - a creative playground for passionate filmmakers and creative professionals.
Alongside other experts, creative squirrel Sara Lisa Vogl and Hollywood filmmaker and acclaimed VR visionary Brett Leonard are going to work and experiment with 30 European creatives on content creation for 360° spheres, spatial narratives and VR experiences. The 5-day-training course consists of intense expert sessions, mentored pressure cooker development, guided rapid prototyping, group writing sessions and hands-on workshops.
“Imagine a place, where you meet talented creatives coming from distinctive professional backgrounds, experimenting and exploring together opportunities of the new medium in search of a common “VR language”. Imagine international experts guiding and coaching them. Imagine hardware support and hands-on workshops and mentoring from skilled VR professionals. This is going to be the VR Creators’ Lab, a five-day-playground which will tighten and strengthen the European VR communities. I am so looking forward to meeting them all in Munich in July. And I am more than happy to welcome Brett Leonard and Sara Lisa Vogl on board,” says Astrid Kahmke, head of the VR Creators’ Lab.
The VR Creators’ Lab is aimed at writers, VR developers, game designers, 360° filmmakers, creative producers and VR enthusiasts with the urge to create great content.
