8-Week Narrative VR Filmmaking Workshop

8-Week Narrative VR Filmmaking Workshop Overview

Designed for students looking for a fully immersive Narrative VR program, our 8-Week Narrative VR Workshop will guide students through the ins and outs of Virtual Reality production and the extensive VR post-production process. Students will take classes in Directing, Screenwriting, Cinematography, and Post-Production, all geared toward creating content for a VR film. Over the course of the eight weeks, students will craft four different productions of increasing complexity guided by their core instructors. Each one of the projects supports the ideas learned in class to advance students’ knowledge and skills.

This workshop offers NYFA students the chance to experience the entire VR production process while getting hands-on training with Virtual Reality camera systems and post-production technology. Over the course of the first four weeks of the program students will work to master the basic skills of simple VR production beginning with 360° photography as they learn how to tell a story in the Virtual Reality environment. During the final four weeks of the workshop students will explore more advanced topics in VR and will practice those concepts in their final two projects. The program culminates with a final 360° screening experience.

No prior experience is required to enroll in the 8-Week Narrative VR Filmmaking Workshop. Projects and curriculum are subject to change.
