Story Edge introduces the basics of Virtual Reality

Posted Wednesday 14 Nov 2018

Got a great idea for a VR project but don't know where to start? This Sandbox is for you! Virtual Reality (VR) is pushing the boundaries of traditional moving image storytelling. However, for those unfamiliar with this new medium, or who are beginning their filmmaking career, VR can seem daunting and out of reach. At Sandbox #3, local industry leaders will break down those barriers, introduce you to the technical specifications used in VR and show you how to shift your creative storytelling from to 2D to 3D, from 180 to 360. You'll hear from Alejandro Davila, a VR and AR producer and founder of Auckland-based Conical Interactive Studios, and Aliesha Staples (pictured below), a producer and pioneer of VR, AR and new technologies, and winner of the High Tech Award in 2017 and 2018.
