VR & AR: #TheNextEvolution in TV & Film

02/05/2020 – About the Topic

Film and Television as an industry embraced immersive technology from the very start – and not just as subject for Black Mirror or British television series The Feed. VR was used both as subject matter and a primary creative tool for Ready Player One, but also extensively utilized for content creation of the latest Lion King movie. Studios are using VR to complement their movie franchises with Virtual Reality games like Star Wars’ Vader Immortal and Augmented Reality promoting Game of Thrones using SnapChat and Magic Leap.

Come talk with industry experts about how VR and AR are growing in the TV and film industry, and how you can get involved yourself. We will have networking, demos and an audience Q&A with our expert panel.

What’s The Format:

5:30-6:00 – Demos and Networking
6:00-6:30 – Introductions
6:30-7:30 – Panel Discussion and Q&A
7:30-8:15 – Networking & Demos
8:15-8:30 – Cleanup and Good Bye

We start with informal networking and technology demonstrations, then host a panel discussion to answer audience questions, and we end with more networking and technology demonstrations. The conversation will start with a primary topic, but ultimately take us wherever it goes. We keep it simple and informal – this MeetUp is about you, our members, and not the host or presenters. Come and try some new technology, get your questions answered, and take your next step in XR Technology.
