VIRTUAL REALITY STORYTELLING CLASS
SPRING 2017 - NEW 400/600, Class #38046
After decades of hearing about how virtual reality will "one day" emerge as the next new medium, that day is now here. It's time to address the next big question: how do we create compelling experiential content for VR consumers?
THE NEXT BIG STORYTELLING MEDIUM
This class will set you up to be a part of that answer and give you an edge when applying to work in new and growing VR divisions at major media companies like Discovery, The New York Times, Huffington Post, NextVR, Disney, and most Hollywood studios.
JUMP INSIDE THE STORY IN FULL 360
You will learn how to transport someone's consciousness into an experiential story for virtual and mixed reality headsets such as the HTC Vive, Google Cardboard and Daydream, Facebook's Oculus Rift and Hololens.
360 VIDEO AND CGI ENVIRONMENTS
You will get hands-on experience shooting, stitching and editing 360 videos on GoProrigs and the Samsung Gear360 camera using AutoPano, Adobe Premiere and Skybox. You'll also learn how to create interactive game-like stories in the Unity3Dengine and the Playmaker interactivity plugin. NO CODING OR DESIGN SKILLS are required, but if you can code you will be able to do a lot more.
This course is developed and taught by Dan Pacheco, the Newhouse school’s Chair of Journalism Innovation, professional VR developer / consultant and Edward R. Murrow award winner
