Storytelling in Virtual Reality

Interest in Virtual Reality (VR) is growing - with major brands like YouTube and Facebook developing platforms to support 360 video, VR is becoming more and more accessible to the general public. Canada is a leading player in this VR landscape. According to the International Data Corporation, by 2021, the firm expects the Canadian virtual reality sector to reach $7.1 billion. Storytelling in Virtual Reality is a comprehensive two-day workshop that empowers students with the knowledge and skills required to create their VR stories. The course includes: an overview of the current VR ecosystem, the new and exciting as well as the challenges this new medium presents; understanding the opportunities of spherical storytelling and interactive VR; exploring the roles the viewer can take in the VR stories. This workshop encourages students to engage, experience and pioneer with VR, the new four-dimensional stage.

The Introduction to Independent Filmmaking, Short Film Writing and Camera Theory workshops are recommended as prerequisites.​
