n collaboration with Google Spotlight and The Speakeasy SF (Immersive Theater), a group of Filmmakers, Storytellers and Developers will gather in a garage in Downtown Palo Alto to play with and explore all the possibilities that Virtual Reality offers. As mentors we will have Rachid El Guerrab, Technical Project Lead at Google/ATAP; David L. Gluck, Executive Producer of The Speakeasy SF; and Jesse Damiani, Editor in Chief at VR Scout and CEO at Galatea Design, an app for immersive scripting.
Participants will be formed into teams and provided with the tools and resources to co-create immersive worlds in a mindset of collaboration and spontaneity. Each team will be assigned a unique venue in Palo Alto (a hairdresser, a yoga studio, an office and a wine bar) where their story will unfold.
On Sunday, from 5 to 6 pm, the doors of the 4 VR films sets will open to the general public so anyone can explore their stories first hand. In an Immersive Theater format you will be able to literally step into the film. Through telepresence robots, anyone in the world will be able to experience the live theater piece first hand.
Amongst our partners, we count with Google Spotlight, The SpeakeasySF, VR Scout, Galatea Design, WeLens, 360profilms, Startup Embassy, Yoga Works, Innogy, Vino Locale and Aziza’s.
