We kick off in Amsterdam on Thursday, 25 October with a major conference at the DeLaMar Theater. The cream of the international VR & AR world is coming to inspire you and bring you bang up to date. We can already confirm Samantha Gorman & Danny Cannizzaro from Tender Claws, Boo Aguilar (São Paulo) and Microsoft’s Michael Gourlay as speakers at VR Days.
No one can do it all on their own. A jury of VR, film and technology experts will select a number of projects to present themselves to international professionals at VR Days CineMart. Organized in collaboration with the International Film Festival of Rotterdam.
Technology and film professionals will examine the possibilities for financing and distribution. Another aim is to find possible partners for the selected projects.
On stage we find a selection of great makers, the audience will consist of investors, platforms, distributors, IP buyers and producers.
Storytelling in VR is in development, to say the least. We notice the strong relation between performing arts and VR and that is why we investigate this relationship in a lively, creative and deeply investigative session. And we are thrilled to collaborate with London’s National Theatre and its brilliant minds for this year’s Writers’ Room.
On stage, AR and VR scripts that are still under development will be read by professional actors who will share their knowledge and insight to further develop the scripts. A team of industry experts from scriptwriters to UI designers, from HMD developers to dramaturgs.
This offers the writers a look behind the scenes of the writing process, creates discussions about what good drama must meet, and offers a platform to present the script and networking opportunities for writers, directors, producers, broadcasters and funds.
At the VRackathon, teams of experts examine challenges issued by companies and non-profits alike. These challenges can be of a social, commercial and/or artistic nature. The best solutions that the competing teams of smart alecks come up with are then guided to prototype by VR Days. Interested in submitting a challenge? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
