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.
