In this workshop, we dove into a new language of art as we learned to write narratives based on visual experiences like Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR)! Immersive Media is a broad, innovative field in its infancy. In these initial stages of “new art”, the opportunity and sense of collaboration are plentiful because rules and hierarchy have yet to be established! These experiences will need great stories and great storytellers. This workshop was themed: reality.
- How to think, create and write successfully for Immersive Media
- A variety of examples related to Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR)
- How to write for an immersive space
- “I liked that I was able to think outside the box and challenge myself to write something new.”
- “I loved everything in this workshop, and plan on continuing to work on what I wrote today!”
- “This was super cool! VR is an emergent technology and it’s so cool to learn more about new mediums and ways to make art.”
- “My favorite part of the workshop was watching all those videos and learning about all the different types of virtual reality. The music was also spot on.”
