This year, DocLab Academy workshops include:
Reframing: interactive VR for non-fiction By Oscar Raby and Katy Morrison
How do we create stories based on engagement, as opposed to stories we merely look at? In Virtual Reality the user is the cursor, and what you DO is what you get. This workshop will be a short exercise in interactive, process-based VR documentary. Instead of creating virtual reality with a 360 video camera, this workshop shows you how to scan objects and people to create an interactive digital model of the world around us.
