360° VIDEO: Concepts & Creation

Virtual Reality is growing exponentially: hi-tech VR headsets, backpack computers, hi-res smartphones, motion tracking and 360º camera rigs. Nowadays, every film festival has a special 360° video exhibit and market where spectators can experience the newest VR documentaries, fiction movies and animations.
But what is needed to produce such a movie…? What are the differences and the similarities among 360° video and arts such as music, cinema or theater? What is the the necessary equipment to produce and present 360° movies? It is possible to think of 360° video as a form of art? Each time a new type of media blooms, blossoms with it aesthetic and technical discussions.

In this 2-day crash-course we will look at all aspects of a 360º film production: from concept, production, post-production, presentation and distribution. We won’t just focus on technical aspects but will also explore the artistic possibilities of this, according to some, ‘medium of the 21st century’. The workshop will focus on non-interactive 360º video production.
