Hands-On Virtual Reality Workshops at NYFA
Virtual Reality is a medium unlike any other audio-visual storytelling platform, immersing users inside an experience and invoking a depth of emotion and interactivity comparable to real life. Virtual Reality brings together computer-generated images, programming, user experience design, game design, live action 360 video, nonlinear screenwriting, spatialized audio and transmedia narrative design to create a holistic experience.
To be a virtual reality developer, one must be an expert storyteller, capable of building dynamic, immersive worlds to explore. In the Virtual Reality (VR) workshops at NYFA, students practice real world VR techniques under the guidance of experts, learning fundamental creative and technical skills in a hands-on learning environment. Throughout the programs, students study concept development and VR design, creating their own interactive VR experiences, games and 360 degree films.
As NYFA strives to make education in visual storytelling and the digital arts accessible to the most diverse, international, and broadest spectrum of students, our virtual reality programs provide an opportunity for students and faculty to collaborate and build lasting connections.
