Virtual Reality Demystified

Tackling VR from Planning through Acquisition to Post

Virtual Reality technology is getting cheaper and consumer interest is growing, which means that this is an emerging market waiting for quality content. Who's ready to tackle it?

Editors' Lounge was proud to present our first VR-themed event on Friday, February 26. Four presenters generously donated their time to cover this topic from all angles:

“Demystifying VR”
VR-guru Lucas Wilson, Head of Production at JauntVR, blew everyone's minds with a deep dive into Virtual Reality including a demo of the Jaunt ONE, an amazing 360-degree camera.

"VR in Production"
Stephen Fromkin, CEO of Talespin Media, discussed VR production in great depth, including budgeting, planning, VR storytelling, and much more.

"VR in Post"
Chris Healer, Founder and CEO of The Molecule, talked about the ins and out of stitching, rendering, and visual effects workflow and considerations for different kinds of VR rigs.

"Audio for VR"
John Hendicott and Chris Timpson, Co-founders of Aurelia Soundworks, dazzled the crowd with the particulars of 3D sound for VR.

There was a lot to learn, and the record turnout proved that this really is a topic that people are really interested in.
