We’ve seen the beginnings of virtual reality in film, such as Digital Cave Media’s recent work with Discovery.
On Saturday, Matthew Ragan is set to dig into a daylong workshop about how VR and other new technology fits into the storytelling process. Held at the JHU/MICA Film Center at the Centre Theatre in Station North, the 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. workshop is free and open to the public.
Ragan, an interactive system designer and media maker, is set to break down technologies such as virtual reality, projection mapping, screen-based interactions and responsive environments. The day will include a mix of lectures and hands-on activities.
It’s a program of the Saul Zaentz Innovation Fund in Film & Media Studies at Johns Hopkins University, which is also running a film incubator.
