Final Project – Shuran Huang

My final project is a 360 degree video of Collin's Barber & Beauty Shop located in Syracuse, New York. I have been working with this three-generation family for three months on a documentary photo project (https://www.shuran.photography/stills/) and a set of portraits for this family (https://www.shuran.photography/travel/). So when it comes to vr class's final project, I decided to produce a 360 video of how this family actually works in the barbershop and the impact this African American family has brought to the community.

Kyle Slyva’s Final VR Project

When I set out to do this final project, I will say that my goal was a little ambitious. My plan was to on create a scene in Unity where the user gets onto a virtual reality motorcycle and rides it through a city with with traffic to simulate a real motorcycle experience. I wanted the user to be able to use the Oculus Rift and grab onto the virtual handlebar and use it in the same manner that it would be used in real life (like using the throttle...

Final Project: Gabriel Acosta

The goal of my project was to make a cooking show for beginners that made them feel at home and comfortable with the kitchen. The result was a 12 minute cooking show titled Cooking From All Angles. Proposal: http://wp.me/p5y0Rc-1pp The first step in the process was thinking about how to give the viewer the right angles that give you that feeling of being next to someone without boring the audience. The experience was deliberately slow pace because we didn't want to glance over anything to ensure beginner cooks are comfortable....

Final Project – Alina Li

  Kanda and I decided to make a sequel (Let Me In) of team project (Let Me Out)  and we focused on creating the spatial audio by using the Sennheiser Ambisonics Microphone.   Plot: The audience seating in the room noticed some objects in the room moved automatically and the security footage on TV showed the ghost from Let Me Out was trying to get in.  As the security footage ended, the ghost came in. The filming was the easiest part. After filming the security footage and rehearsing the positions of...

Final Project: Audrey Lee

For my final project I knew that I really wanted to explore photogrammetry and somehow incorporate a journalism/reporting component to it. Initially I wanted to do the project surrounding sculpture and 3D art but after a series of unfortunate events, I decided to tell a story through footwear instead. My final project showcases four different pairs of shoes, each with a different story to tell. I used Photogrammetry softwares Photoscan and Trnio to complete my models (read more about my struggles and triumphs in my independent learning post), and I...

Unity Final Project-Anqi Yuan

Anqi Yuan For my final project, I planned to create an imagined future world which integrates eastern and western cultures in Unity at the beginning. However, the appropriate assets are really hard to find. Thus, I changed the idea to make a story about dreaming about the ancient China. My final project is called "Dream". The whole story is about the player falls into sleep and has a mystical dream. When the player is dreaming, he/she can walk around the ancient China. I hope people can experience ancient China and...

Final Assignment – Audra Linsner

I started filming for this project at the end of September. Currently, I’m in a research class about the Haudenosaunee Great Law of Peace. One of the things we were interested in is how the Haudenosaunee navigate conflict resolution and how lacrosse is a part of that. I’ve played lacrosse for a long time, so it was really interesting to get to know the history of the game and how different it Is now than how it is played by the people who created it. I set out to tell...

Matthew Mulcahy Final VR: VR Meditation

The story of my project was to look at a women who teaches yoga and the ability to bring it with you anywhere. For this video I set out to make a video that people could use whenever they find themselves stressed or anxious. I thought the story and lessons from this teacher could help anyone find relaxation for just a few minutes a day. As I began working on this project I learned how carefully you need to plan out all of your events as well as the ability...

Final Project – Kanda

For the final project, Let Me In, I decided to team up with Alina and made a sequel of our group project: Let Me Out (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Bf6ERtaNaQ) We used the Sennheiser Ambisonics Microphone to record the soundtrack for Let Me In. This wasn't what we originally planned to do but definitely was more challenging and rewarding. We both want to make something more than just shoot and put-them-together type of project so we went through a week of filming, recording and post-production. We pictured one of the plots of the story should be...
