Hi VR journalist, Hi VR doc-maker,
it is time for yet another VR conference and we are looking for contributions. If you are interested in participating, we have several options here.
The one-day VR Conference for Journalism & Documentary is composed of two modules:
1) In the morning: Keynote speeches
2) In the afternoon: Hands-on sessions (mini-workshops and showcases).
CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS
For the morning sessions, we’re looking for speakers with hands-on experience in non-fictional VR, willing to share a 20-minute account of past experiences and visions for the future. If you’re up for sharing your insights, send a short message to firstname.lastname@example.org with a tentative title, 3-line description and links to your past work / inspiration that you’ve drawn from. New deadline to submit is Friday 21 July 2017 at 11pm CET.
For the afternoon, we’re looking for VR projects (CGI-only) — either in prototyping stage or already published projects — that you’d like to discuss / brainstorm on / test or paper-prototype in a 90-minute mini-workshop (you will lead the workshop). Beyond the mini-workshops, we’re looking for showcases that can be experienced at quick set-up stations (like in previous years). It’s „bring your own gear“, as always. If you’re up for the gig, send a short message to email@example.com with a tentative title, 3-line description and hyperlink to your project, if applicable. New deadline to submit is 21 July 2017 at 11pm CET.
ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
The VR Conference for Journalism & Documentary is that one day in the year where narrative pioneers come together in Berlin. VR enthusiasts, journalists, interactive documentary makers, early technology adopters and other non-fiction storytellers meet to share experiences, seek inspiration and head back home feeling ‚virtually real‘. The conference is self-organised and all costs are covered by ticket sales. The talks of the first conference in 2015 can be found here. The programme from last year can be found here.
