WORKSHOP 1 – “Humans and Virtual/Augmented Realities”
“Without a clear understanding of the human side of virtual reality, the experience will always fail.” (Jason Jerald)
Designing for virtual and augmented reality is an incredibly complex challenge. When done well, these experiences can be brilliant and pleasurable, but when done badly, they can result in frustration and sickness. In this free 3-hour workshop Jason Jerald, author of "The VR Book: Human-Centered Design for Virtual Reality" and Co-Founder and Principal Consultant of NextGen Interactions, through a combination of use cases and demonstrations will show how users perceive and intuitively interact with various forms of reality, discuss the causes of VR sickness, and demonstrate how to employ useful and pleasing content to create an immersive experience.
When you leave the workshop, you will understand virtual, augmented, and mixed reality from the human experience perspective, allowing you to better create – or simply appreciate – powerful "reality" applications, whether for entertainment, education, science, healthcare, or the myriad of other uses of this new and exciting technology.
This workshop is for everyone, whether a developer, content creator, filmmaker, or simply someone interested in knowing more about VR and AR.
Instructor: JASON JERALD, PhD, world’s foremost authority on human-centered design and author of best seller “The VR Book” (http://www.thevrbook.net/)
WORKSHOP 2 - “SHOOTING 360 VIDEO: A STEP-BY-STEP DEMONSTRATION“
"Shooting 360 Video: A Step-by-Step Demonstration" uses lecture, live filming demonstrations, and hands-on labs to cover:
- Why 360?
- What equipment do you need?
- How does producing video in 360 differ from traditional video?
- What are the steps and challenges of planning and filming a 360 movie?
- How is post production different from standard video?
- How do you distribute a 360 video?
In these free 3-hour workshops, Michael Wohl, award-winning filmmaker and author of The 360 Video Handbook: A step-by-step guide to creating video for virtual reality (VR) and Co-Founder, Talkingstick Productions, demonstrates the creation of a 360 video by stepping through pre-production, production, post and distribution.
When you leave the workshop, you will have a working knowledge of 360 video production and the skills to go out and start producing your own experiences.
Instructor: MICHAEL WOHL, author of "The 360 Video Handbook: A step-by-step guide to creating video for virtual reality (VR)" and Co-Founder, Talkingstick Productions, is an award-winning filmmaker and author of 12 books on post production.
